GAKU in Japanese means
EASY, HAPPY & DELIGHTFUL
all in one word!
GAKU cherishes the Izakaya philosophy and provides award-winning dishes in a casual, yet elegant atmosphere with friendly service.
The original GAKU Japanese character represents a bell with a handle, drawn with decorative threads on each side. Such bells were used as instruments in court music, and thus were used to convey the notion of fun and pleasure.
