Japanese tend to not visit each other's homes very much (partly because there usually isn't a lot of space) so they like to meet at cafes and restaurants.
Izakaya are traditional Japanese restaurants, usually with tatami floors and low tables but western style places are popular too.
Usually it is "betsu betsu" style where each person pays their own way.

I very rarely visit my Japanese friends in their homes.
We usually meet at the local izakaya or Denny's.
Last time I went to someones house was last year when I went to a funeral!
(Then it was to pay respects to the person who had passed on.. they were laid out in the house!!)

Sometimes I visit my friend's homes if it is just me but if a group of us meet it is usually at karaoke or a family restaurant.
Their places are all too small for groups
There is also a lot of giri in Japan when we are a part of any group, isn't there!
If the boss says "friday night we are going eating and drinking" everyone cancels their plans and goes!

Eric, Sushi Train restaurants are great in Japan! I wish there were a place like that near me in the US. I haven't heard of any around.
