If you wonder where to go for a night out in Tokyo, the Higashi Azabu area, just off Tokyo Tower, with it’s many delightful dining options might be worth checking out! One place I highly recommend to stop by if you want to try Japan’s unique local beer is “RISE & WIN Brewing Co. KAMIKATZ TAPROOM”! Not only their fascinating selection of beer, their tender chicken and tasty vegetables from Tokushima Prefecture in Shikoku is something which makes it worth a visit!
“RISE & WIN Brewing Co. KAMIKATZ TAPROOM” is located on the first floor of a shared office building. It is a very warm and cozy restaurant, and on sunny days, some people are sitting on the bench in front of the restaurant where they enjoy an after-work beer.

If you look closely at the interior, you will find a wall made out of old windows, reusable cloth coasters, and empty jar chandeliers, just to mention a few things. There are a lot of items that have been reused and up-cycled. Actually, that’s no surprise if you’d know the story behind the restaurant!
“RISE & WIN Brewing Co. KAMIKATZ” is a company that has its main store and brewery in Kamikatsu, which is in the middle of the mountains in Tokushima Prefecture, Shikoku.
