Kiten! is a sports bar-izakaya just a few minutes' walk from Koenji Station. The owner is Kawano-san, said to be a mega-fan of any sports team from Fukuoka, whether the Softbank Hawks baseball team or Avispa Fukuoka football team. Luckily for fellow sports fans, that means there is a 80-inch screen, plus three 40-inch TV monitors, on which various sport events are screened.
Their drinks menu is worth a browse, if not just for the rather interesting naming system. If you pay ¥1,000, you can name a drink of your choice for one year, which has led people to name all kinds of drinks after their favourite teams and players. After you've chosen your drink, have a side of homemade, quite voluminous karaage.
