Pagu Pagu, Sendai

A cozy izakaya in the heart of the city

By Keith Wyss    - 1 min read

When I first came here I immediately felt comfortable. Pagu actually means pug (see logo). For me Pagu Pagu stands for good food and a family like atmosphere. Pagu Pagu offers a range of uncommon but very tasty Japanese dishes; their delicious tonpeiyaki (とん平焼き) , a kind of okonomiyaki (fried pancake consisting of veggies and meat), is famous. Of course you’ll also find a wide range of drinks. There are two izakayas called Pagu Pagu, this photo story features the second one, which opened about two years ago: Ittekoi Sakaba Pagu Pagu (イッてこい酒場ぱぐぱぐ). An absolute must for everyone visiting Sendai.

Since my childhood the ancient Samurai, Japanese culture and history fascinated me. It was always a dream to discover the mysteries of Japan myself. When I came here in June 2010 I immediately fell in love with the country and its people. After travelling for two weeks I spontaneously decided to stay here and settled in Ichinoseki, Iwate. The first year I have been to various places on every main island but Shikoku. After the happenings in March 2011 I was forced to make a decision. In July 2011 I moved to Sendai, Miyagi and started to work as ALT in Shibata. In March 2012 I started to work for a company in Sendai. In March 2013 I moved back to Switzerland after almost three years. JapanTravel is a great platform that gives me the possibility to share my experience with others interested in this beautiful country, where you can recognize new things and learn every day.
