Shortlisted in the Time Out Love Tokyo Awards 2017
Fermentation has been all the rage recently in Tokyo, and this new shop, part of the Nakameguro Koukashita complex, plays right into the trend's hands by focusing on said time-honoured preservation technique. With a selection that includes soy sauce, miso, amazake, bread and much more, 85 deals in items for daily use that are both good for your health and the environment's. They also stock hard-to-get types of miso, vinegar and soy sauce, so if you're into cooking, do stop by. And for truly intense fermentation lovers, they offer a monthly plan: the ¥1,944 'My Nuka Service'. They'll store nuka (rice bran used for pickling) for you in a temperature-controlled room, where only you will be allowed to touch your box of bran (staff will turn your goods over from time to time for even preservation). Now that's funky service.
