    Mebae is located in a small upstairs room down a narrow alley just across from the Meitetsu station in Chiryu Japan. I was last there in April 2006. The staff is excellent! It's basically a karaoke bar, but there's much more than just music there - of course there's plenty of that though. Great drinks, snacks, and all the conversation (Japanese or English) that you could possibly want. I'm sure that Mama-san, Daisy, and Junko would appreciate your visit.

    Dress Code: I'm not sure there's an actual dress code, but it is a classy use your best judgement!

    When you are visiting Chiryu you may not find a place to dine. Cairn Izuhara is located at the convenent place along the Old Tokaido road. It is a nice place to buy some buns and some sweets. I bought a burger type bun and one with eggs and hams inserted. It cost about 310 yen combined. Not bad for a lunch.
