People who appreciate jazz have been flocking to this small and simple live music venue in an unadorned contemporary concrete building for 20 years. Its website is in Japanese, but it provides a schedule along with prices for its lineup of mostly Japanese musicians. Note that its entrance, around the back and upstairs, is a bit hard to find, but once inside you'll be rewarded by serious music and fans.
