Specialising in Tokyo-made sake and edibles, this shop opened in November 2016 on the ground floor of the new Ryogoku Edo Noren shopping centre, which was created under the banner of 'enjoying stylish Edo cuisine'. Tokyo Shoten boasts products from a whole host of booze producers, including sake from ten different breweries that have been around since the Edo era, nine authentic varieties of shochu from the Izu Islands (known as 'Tokyo Island Sake'), and plonk courtesy of three different wineries within the 23 wards. To make life even better, you can also sample some of the goods from ¥300 per cup. For those needing some food with their tipple, the Tokyo produce trend continues, with Hachijojima's Kusaya cheese, Okutama wasabi pickles and Akikawa beef jerky on offer – a lineup that should make any Tokyoite proud.
