Numata-san runs this small family-owned but very focused wine store. In 1997, he converted the shop from an everyday liquor store to centre around natural wine after drinking his first glass and finding an instant connection to the grape and a sense of the terroir. It spurred him to learn more and eventually convert not only his shop but his whole philosophy to match that of the natural wine maker and consumer: easy life, easy wine. You’ll find a large selection in the refrigerated walk-in cellar – the majority is French but there are some choice bottles from Italy, Spain, Greece, Australia, New Zealand and Japan. Numata-san is always on hand to give recommendations and wraps each bottle in a cold pack to ensure it travels in an optimal condition to its final destination. With bottles starting around ¥2,000 and the in-store bar opening on weekends and holidays, you can find your entry point into the world of natural wine.
