They now operate stores all over Tokyo, but this is where high-flying liquor dealers Hasegawa first got started. A treasure trove for friends of domestic spirits, the shop stocks both nihonshu and shochu in ample varieties, clearly organised by maker, area and price. If you’re looking for a specific bottle or need help with pairings, do ask the knowledgeable staff – you might even get an English-speaker every now and then. Their cozy in-store bar unfortunately closed down at the end of November 2014, but the selection still merits a trip, even from the far side of Tokyo. Finally, oenophiles will want to know that natural wines and champagne are also rather well represented here.
