Yona Yona Beer Works – Kichijoji

My husband and I have visited Yona Yona Beer Works in Kichijoji 3 times now.  Kichijoji is a great Tokyo neighborhood that doesn’t feel too far away from base.  We had a friend drop us off at Seibu Tachikawa station and made it to Kichijoji station in one hour with two transfers.  The first two times we just went for a beer tasting/drink before lunch and dinner.  We recently celebrated my husband’s birthday there for dinner.  This place has a great atmosphere and lots of beers to choose from.  At lunch or dinner you can get a tasting flight to sample the different beers.  On our last visit they had a special called The Merry Go Round which was a tasting of 9 different beers and one barley wine.  We split this tasting as it was ¥5000 and the samples were larger.  For appetizers we enjoyed the pickled vegetables, salmon and pineapple tartare, and a cheese plate.  For dinner my husband ordered the sausage platter where he chose 3 flavors from about 10 different options.  I had the Buckwheat Pizza which was good (but covered in mushroom that I took off).  The menu is in Japanese and English but I missed the details of what was actually on the pizza.  This place is great for a date night, boys/girls night out, or a destination to entertain out of town visitors.  They also have a nice selection of beer glasses you can buy at check out.  We trained back to Akishima station and took the bus to the stop right outside the East gate so we could walk home from there.  You can also catch a taxi at Akishima for ¥1000- ¥1500 to the East gate. – Angela Vaillant, January 2018
