Noteworthy Spots to Experience Japan's Food Culture in Kabutocho

Heiwa Doburoku Kabutocho Brewery, a sake brewery opened in 2022 and situated on the first floor of the elegant hybrid timber Kitoki building, serves a real treat: doburoku, an unpressed, slightly fizzy sake. Around 10 flavors made in soup pots are on offer each day at this Tokyo brewery-pub, with standard varieties such as plain, hops and azuki served alongside special and seasonal varieties like mikan orange and basil. Choose the smaller 70mL serving size to facilitate sampling several flavors.

You’ll find a cutting-edge take on cuisine that uses fresh ingredients from producers all over Japan at Kabeat, which opened in 2021. Beyond providing delicious and fresh ingredients, the producers working with Kabeat conserve the environment by practicing resource recycling. These eco-friendly ingredients from across Japan are turned into a variety of delectable dishes inspired by several cultures, including, of course, Japanese. As the menu changes with the seasons, there’s always something fresh and new on offer.
