High-end and fun Izakaya-counter with great sakes and natural wines.Sowado was one of our favorite and most fun experiences without a doubt, and for this one in particular we want to thank Alex, and also Hoze (who pretty much organized our whole trip), for making this happen. The place was probably our favorite when it comes to the interior, deco and atmosphere, which as mentioned was very fun, and even though the place kind of felt high-end, it was still super casual, just a perfect balance.Focusing on the food, some of the dishes we had were the following:* Chawanmushi with kue (grouper), dried sea cucumber & nanohana.* Tofu.* Chu toro sashimi with nori.* Pot with shirako, crispy rice and shiitake.* Turtle egg soup.* Unagi.* Fried chicken.The whole menu is a la carte, and we ordered the most items possible, and we really enjoyed our experience here. On top of that we had some great wines and sakes, actually some of the best of our trip.Definitely a place we want to come back in our future trips to Japan.
