Koba is a gem. Awesome vibe and decor, and a great host. Bom is an awesome dude. Mami moved on, but she still visits. Come for the rock/metal, stay for the shochu. Meet all the travelers.

Our hosts Dom and Mani were just great. Started with 17 yr old Japanese whisky. Chill carbonara was great and the pizzas are just fine. We finished off with tuna salad, yummy.

This is a very friendly place. Everyone seemed to know each other and the owner made a point to come over to our table, welcome us, and talk to us. This was our favorite bar in Japan.
