I went to YATAI village last week.
Actually it was the 2nd time i have been there. First I went the second day after it opened..
It was very crowded and the customer service was so slow. It seems to me that they are not used to having so many customers… Oh well.
Then I went again last week and It was not crowded. I think there was no customers returning and it was 2pm. Most other IZAKAYA was not open and even though it’s a new street It’s seems to be deserted.
I can recommend just one place. It is Dogzilla that is a hotdog shop. The owner was so funny and kind. He looks American but he speaks fluent Japanese.
