At this Shibuya shop, you’ll find fridges where craft beer from across Japan stands beside classic Bavarian lagers and medieval Belgian ales, while the wine section also offers a globetrotting array of vino, including champagne and sherry.
Naturally, there’s sake and shochu on offer, and the selection of spirits is almost overwhelming. You’ll find a large range of mostly American and Scotch whisky, but there are also drinks you don’t often see on shelves in Japan, like Greek ouzo, Dutch advocaat and orange bitters.
There's imported food, too, making Yamaya a one-stop shop if you’re planning a cocktail party. You can pick up quality rum, coconut cream and pineapple juice for your piña coladas, plus gin, vermouth and olives for your martinis. On your way out, grab some snacks, mixers and something for dinner – evening sorted.
