CAFE & BAR in the hostel
I recommend Umeshu 梅酒 (Japanese plum wine) to international tourists.
Non-guests can also use the cafe. The hostel holds “meet-up events” for the international tourists and local Japanese people four times a week at the cafe. Therefore, the international guests can communicate with local people, and you can learn useful sightseeing information from them.
Meet-up stars at 8:00pm. (Wed. Fri. Sat. Sun.)
The admission is always free for hostel guests.
If you’re not a guest of the hostel, the admission is free on Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday but you need to purchase at least one drink to attend it.
* Only on Fridays the system is different. Non-guests are charged 1000 yen, because there’ll be an attendant managing an enjoyable meeting.
Several kinds of burgers are available.
The prices are including tax.
The burgers are served with french fry but beverages are optional.
