Wandering around any of the narrow back streets around Gifu's Yanagase district, you're bound to come across heaps of small shops sporting the three S's known for bringing on a good time: sushi, sashimi, and sake. While many locals are a bit timid to speak with foreigners, as soon as you smile, nod your head and say that first "konban wa", order "atsukan o hitotsu kudasai" ("warm sake, please"), you're in for a good time with the locals.
(Just a quick note: be a little mindful of places that have "snack" written on the doorway or sign; these usually charge a nominal fee for sitting down--usually starting at 3,000 yen or so.)
