Until around the 1970s, izakaya had a strong image of a male office worker drinking Japanese sake, but in recent years, a wide variety of drinks and dishes such as chu-hi and wine have been added to the interior decoration so that women will like it. The number of shops that have devised this is increasing, and the image of a place that anyone can easily use, including groups of women only and families, is becoming established.
Especially since the 1980s, izakaya chains have become more popular. As a result, izakaya is cheap, can attract a large number of people, can be a little noisy, and has the advantage of being able to choose drinks and dishes according to the tastes of various people. For this reason, it is often used as a venue for holding "simple banquets" in groups such as students, office workers, and friends. Many stores, mainly chain stores, basically sell low-priced food and drinks, so they serve a wide range of customers regardless of gender.
