I love going here to eat, the menu is diverse and the service is fantastic, iIlike that it is off the stroll and tucked away so it generally not too busy.

This is the second time we’ve visited here, and the food has been consistently excellent. Great service and atmosphere, we loved the modern and more casual take on Japanese food. We enjoyed the sashimi, cod, udon, tatakis and more. Some may find the portion sizes...More

Nice setting - Tapas style Japanese restaurant. Poke was absolutely superb. Some other dishes such as tempura prawns (or similar) were a little disappointing.

Description
"Izakayas" are informal Japanese gastropubs popular throughout Japan known for serving tapas-style food. Located in the Royal Bank Building in Whistler Village, Harajuku's interior is inspired by a Japanese village in the early 1900s. Our cosy nooks and large booths make it suitable for locals and visitors alike. We offer a great selection of sake, draft beer and sake margaritas!!
