The Izakaya - the Japanese bar

An Izakaya is a Japanese style bar, that mainly differs from a Dutch/Western pub with the larger selection of foods on offer.

Relax with your friends with a Japanese beer, sake or whisky but of course also with non-alcoholic drinks, combined with a wide variety of Japanese snacks, finger foods and mini-meals.

The Izakaya is at the entrance of the festival. This new large space will be great to hang out with your friends while making sure you have enough energy to survive the festival and then to to burn it all up by staying late into the night.
