Numerous inexpensive and delicious restaurants and bars are found around Kamata. We introduce treasured spots serving delicious spirits such as local favorite bars and restaurants frequented by gourmet writers.
Sashimiya Gotsubo, a heart-warming standing bar
A standing bar enjoyable communicating with friendly local people. A heart-warming Oyassan (master) and Okamisan (his wife) who is supporting him gently are attractive and they have many regular customers, who will be friendly with any other new customer. Master's previous job was a seafood wholesaler and everything he serves including sashimi and nimono (simmered vegetables dish) is fresh and tasty. He provides expensive food without much profit sometimes, thinking "I want to see customers smiling while enjoying a delicious meal." This spirit shows the magnificent side of the downtown.
