Hasegawa Saketen Kameido

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
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.
