Tokyo has a vibrant drinking scene – and that's not just because the city has an insane number of bars and izakaya. The country is a prolific producer of alcohol, from amazing sake and exceptional whisky, both of which Japan is already known for, to craft beer, artisanal gin and domestic wine, all of which are booming at the moment.
So naturally you'll want to bring home a bottle of Japanese spirit as a momento from your trip. Whether you're a collector or an enthusiast, these liquor shops in Tokyo offer extensive collections of rare bottles, from gift-ready one-cup sake to limited-edition Japanese whisky and more. Best of all, most of these speciality shops even offer tasting for around ¥100 – so you can explore new labels before deciding on a purchase, or three.
