Cherishing the spirit of hospitality:
Our hostess spent many years working as a service professional specializing in VIP overseas tours. In opening her own establishment, the thing she most wanted to emphasize was “wholehearted hospitality”.
“Kokoron” is a portmanteau of kokoro, meaning heart, mind, and spirit, and un, meaning fortune. This is a place where you can have a relaxing time amidst heartfelt hospitality. We want to see your fortunes rise ever higher.
Kokoron has a modern Japanese theme and an interior that conveys the sense of a relaxed hideaway for grownups. The counter is quite spacious, making for a comfortable room.
Table seat a partition to make semi-private room for a privacy and quiet meal.
Our menu is based on dishes that pair with sake. From ingredients delivered directly from the hostess’s birthplace of Hakodate, to dashi made from Hokkaido kombu, to grilled meat and fish marinated with original sake lees paste. We order sake lees straight from the brewery. We offer cuisines with an attention to detail you won’t taste anywhere else.
We offer a selection of over 30 kinds of sake from all over the country, hand-picked by our sake sommelier hostess. We also offer seasonal and rare sake that are always of the moment.
As for beer, we have a preference for Suntory’s Master’s Dream, the next step up from their The Premium Malt’s series.
