Water is supplied on the counter as it would be at a conveyor-belt sushi restaurant. The water is served at room-temperature (or a little bit cold) and is available for self-service. Conveyor-belt sushi restaurants use the same system to serve water, but instead they usually offer hot water for customers to make green tea by themselves.

端数値引
In Japan, some restaurants and bars round the bill to the nearest 10 or 100 yen above or below.
For example, this is a receipt I had at Yakiniku Like:
530 × 1.1 - 3 = 580 yen
The 10% tax is added on, and then it rounds to the nearest 10 yen below.
(But when I went to a bar in Tokyo, they rounded to the nearest 100 yen above.)

I highly recommend you go to the restaurant on the 29th, because every 29th day of the month, they offer some kind of discount.

When I went there on May 29th, the two items below were HALF PRICE!

Wagyu Ribs (Black Wagyu Beef)
黒毛和牛カルビ
Kuroge-wagyu-karubi
50g 680 yen → 340 yen
100g 1280 yen → 640 yen
*It is acceptable to order only one of the two items, and available until this wagyu is sold out. (You can order it only once.)

The details of the discount might change every month, but in the last few months, the promotion has been the same.
