Kuimono-ya Wan - Izakaya Guide
We're an izakaya, meaning a traditional Japanese pub. Let us tell you more about Kuimono-ya Wan!
We use traditional materials such as wood, bamboo, and even kimono belts called obi to create a soft, warm lighting that is reminiscent of what an old Japanese home would have looked like 100 years ago.
For that, we purchased wood used in real Japanese houses like that, choosing pieces that matched our own shop's interior.
That means that about 200 wooden parts from old Japanese homes make up what is our shop, Kuimono-ya Wan.
We focus on Japanese creative cuisine called sōsaku ryōri. Our diverse menu caters to casual eaters and gourmets both young and old! We change our menu every year in April. On top of that, we also enrich it with new and improved dishes throughout the year, guaranteeing new gourmet discoveries with every visit. Cheese tsukune (meatballs), daikon oden (radish hotchpotch), and tori no karaage (fried chicken)—we also improved some of our most-beloved dishes, classics since the shop first opened, to make them even more delicious!
At Kuimono-ya Wan, even the tableware is an important part of our concept. The "Wan" in our name is the Japanese word for "bowl".
Some of our tableware is authentic ceramics and a Japanese pottery style called Mashiko ware.
Beer is served in pottery as well. With this careful selection of glasses and Mashiko ware, we hope to make your dining experience even more special.
We're looking forward to welcoming you at Kuimono-ya Wan!
