Akabane – known as the ideal place for getting absolutely pissed for ¥1,000, or senbero (sen being 1,000, and bero being an abbreviation for getting flat-out drunk) – was recently graced with the revamp of Numano, a liquor store that's been in business since 1928. Behind the venture is the proprietor of Kurand, the popular sake market. You'll find sake from all over Japan, with cups from ¥300 – those who like to be adventurous with their nihonshu will be happy to hear that the lineup includes some lesser-known bottles as well. Besides being able to get your hands of these goodies, you can look forward to browsing a selection of several different sizes of bottles. And to round things out, there's also a selection of umeshu and other fruit liquors.
