Great experience especially for the whisky lovers! Came especially to Yoichi to visit and it's a great experience indeed! Should try all the single malts, the premium, and the free ones. You should definitely eat in their restaurant to try the whisky and wine shabu2.
Great place to visit if you are nearby. Free whisky tasting and kids can have free Apple juice. Visit the restaurant too if you are nearby. Price is decent and good food. I'd visit this place again in the future
