While izakayas can be found literally everywhere in Japan, the ones in Takasaki often offer something in their menus that separate them from the rest:
Pastas! Takasaki is renowned for being the ‘City of Pasta’. You will find an unusual amount of Italian restaurants around the city. This is due to the region’s abundance of fresh, premium, ingredients necessary to make pastas.
The Dragon Café remains true to Takasaki’s reputation by offering an extensive pasta menu ‒ something you will rarely find in other parts of the country.
It’s the perfect spot to indulge in delicious pastas while also enjoying the lively, friendly atmosphere that izakayas are famous for. Open until the early morning, the Dragon Café welcomes you to cheerfully share drinks to your heart’s content.
The staff, energetic and welcoming, is sure to keep your stomach happy, and your spirit cheerful.
