Ino (イノ) - Best Izakaya in Ikebukuro

For those who like having delicious Japanese sake more than beer while having slices of sashimi (fresh raw fish), Ino is the place to go.  The restaurant has a sharp sense of finding Japanese sake that goes quite well with the food they offer as how wine goes well with the French cuisines.  Though, the focus here is the super fresh raw fish prepared on a stunningly beautiful dish with soy sauce and a bit of wasabi next to it.  You can taste the mind blowing freshness of the sashimi delivered directly from the fish market in your mouth which might also spur your drinking appetite.  Enjoy the outstanding Japanese sake and the fresh sashimi in Ino!
