Have you ever felt the desperate need to buy both organic cosmetics and amazake (a fermented, low-to-non-alcoholic rice drink) at the same store? Despair not: the January opening of Yanaka's Osaji means you'll be able to do exactly that. And if you happen to never have had that feeling, Osaji does a fine job at explaining what you're missing out on. Their namesake line of cosmetics is based on dermatological science and designed so you'll be able to use them over the years while actively working wonders for your skin. The range includes everything from toothpaste and shampoo to facial masks and toners. In order for you to literally work on your skin from the inside out, they've added their custom amazake to the menu; said to be highly nutritious and full of vitamins, it comes in flavours such as Italian Mascarpone and Lemon, Uji Matcha and Kuromitsu Amazake Latte, and Fresh Strawberry Yogurt. Intriguing. Note that the amazake is sold on a take-out basis only.
