There are many popular “Izakaya” (pub restaurants) in Kanazawa, but for those who live in the center of the city, Iwashigumi and Akagi in Katamachi and Musashi in Owari-cho probably head the list. What these restaurants have in common is the shop master’s painstaking love of food and a strong spirit of innovation. Musashi serves・・・

Kanazawa: Ramen Battleground?

I first heard about it at a neighborhood sushi shop. The master was very serious. “Kanazawa used to have no ramen tradition at all, but now it’s become a ramen battleground.” Soon thereafter, late in the evening, at another cafe in the neighborhood, as we were finishing up a game of backgammon, another shop master・・・

This pub restaurant is very familiar to Kanazawans. The background music, unchanged for 10 years, is likely to be 1970’s folk music. The overall atmosphere is very, very Showa. When I first walk in the door, I place my order for “shioyaki” (sardines grilled with salt). I don’t even have to look at the menu・・・

This is why Kanazawa has such a healthy night life. Sometimes we get less hungry late at night, and sometimes we want another drink after eating carbohydrates. Kona’s okonomiyaki is “de rigueur” for Kanazawans late at night. The Spanish restaurant Arosu keeps its wine bar open after midnight, so you can order a drink without・・・

In the Owari-cho area there used to be no Chinese restaurants, and that absence was noticed. Last year, Mei Mei, Marichou-K, and other authentic Chinese restaurants opened one after another. That’s good news for us all. Even so, I often go to the Japanese-style Izakaya Musashi for my Chinese food. Izakaya Musashi offers many other・・・

It’s never dark at the foot of this lighthouse. That’s because of all the traffic going by outside. None of my friends had told me anything about this place. It may be impolite, but I have to say the atmosphere was a little suspicious. The reason I was there in the first place was to・・・
