Food & Nightlife

There are many Yudanaka restaurants, including soba, udon, sushi, other Japanese dining, a Chinese restaurant, pizza, and a coffee shop. Most of the restaurants are small and cute.

Hakko Restaurant and Bar is open for lunch and dinner and specialises in meals using ‘hakko (=eight)’ fermented ingredients (miso, soy, sake, yoghurt, bread, pickles, malt and cheese) with lots of share plates. The bar has plenty of beers (including Shiga Kogen beer), sake and spirits.

Jin Sushi is located just down from the station and provides an easy sushi experience for westerners with an English menu, an English speaking host, and tables with the dropdown space for your legs so you can sit comfortably. This Yudanaka restaurant has some great local sake.

Also near the station in the “green light district” where there are also about 30 little bars (mostly Thai and Philippine hostess bars) that have karaoke, food and ridiculously cheap beer – they compete hard for your business!
