Ashidematoi, the only pub available in Shuzenji Onsen.
Locals gather for a drink or two whether its a weekend or a weekday, it just doesn’t matter…
the locals of Shuzenji Onsen just loves to drink.
Before COVID-19 started spreading,
Ashidematoi was popular to tourists and foreigners as well.
The master can speak broken English and the locals will welcome you with warm heart!
So gather up your courage and give Ashidematoi a shot!
Ashidematoi’s top 3 popular alcohol are lemon sour
(vodka with lemon flavored soda), shochu, and highball (whiskey with soda).
Order a bottle of shochu/whiskey/or other alcohol when with large groups.
If you’re a heavy drinker, ask for a mega size (trust me your bill will be cheaper than normal).
If you want to have a long night talking with locals then just order the regular size.
Of course they have non-alcohol & soft drinks as well for those who can’t handle alcohol.
They have nibbles available for you to share with friends or neighbors.
If you’re a little hungry, I suggest you order their Grilled Sandwiches (also known as Toastie).
