OK, Guys, If you find yourself in Tokyo’s Ginza neighborhood, I highly recommend NAMAHAGE Akita Dining Sake Restaurant!
What the heck Namahage? It is a mythical creature/ogre from the Oga pennisula in Akita Prefecture. Check the photos on this page to get an idea of what the Namahage looks like. In certain parts of Akita Prefecture on New Year’s, the Namahage goes door to door and barges into homes to scare children into being obedient to their parents by asking if there are any lazy or crybaby kids around. The mother then serves sake to the Namahage to calm it down. At Namahage Izakaya in Ginza, a real Namahage sometimes roams the restaurant! You can get the full experience!! However, at this restaurant, the Namahage Ogre will pour sake for YOU!!
I am not usually one for themed restaurants, but this is different! The Akita food featured on the menu is stellar, the Akita sake list is to die for and the namahage deep down has a heart of gold!! Basically, it is a ton of fun.
