Tanabata has come and it’s time for some delicious beer! There are many new establishments around Fuku Station such as Chibune Hospital and some pharmacies, and one of them is a place where you can stand and drink after work.
The restaurant that we would like to feature today is Kageyama, an eight minute walk south from Fuku Station. It’s a stand-and-drink bar.
A long time ago, there were six stand-and-drink bars around Fuku Station where people who work at big factories stop by on their way home from work. However, in the Fuku District, there’s only Kageyama left and two more in Ohno District today.
We knew that there was a stand-and-drink bar, and we wanted to go there, so our dream came true for the first time!
This is the outside view of the bar.
(Side Note: We got permission for photography.)
The counter table can accommodate about ten people, and there’s a space you can drink surrounded by liquor on sale beyond the kitchen. This day’s menu is here.
This is the owner.
Kageyama was founded a hundred fifty years ago, and they started their business for straw for home fuel. Then they also started businesses concerning liquor and rice. According to the owner and his mother, they were also handling propane gas for a while, but today, they handle liquor, rice, and kerosene (home fuel).
Not so long after we ordered, tempura (young sweetfish), horse mackerel sashimi, and grilled chicken came. Each of them were so delicious that they all were a great match with beer.
In addition, the three of us had pork ribs and spicy sausages. In total, we had five plates and three large bottles of beer, a thousand four hundred yen per person. This time we ordered beer, but there are lots of drinks that are of reasonable price, so please stop by here!
Thanks for reading till the end!
