Time Out says

This big, bright Shibuya store boasts drinks, meats, cheeses, spices and snacks from around the world. As the phrase ‘World Liquor System’ on the door implies, the focus is on the alcohol. You’ll find fridges where craft beer from across Japan stands beside classic Bavarian lagers and medieval Belgian ales, while the wine section also offers a globetrotting array of vino, including champagne and sherry.

Naturally, there’s sake and shochu on offer, and the selection of spirits is almost overwhelming. You’ll find a large range of mostly American and Scotch whisky, but there are also drinks you don’t often see on shelves in Japan, like Greek ouzo, Dutch advocaat and orange bitters. The food section makes Yamaya a perfect one-stop shop if you’re planning a cocktail party. You can pick up quality rum, coconut cream and pineapple juice for your piña coladas, plus gin, vermouth and olives for your martinis. On your way out, grab some snacks, mixers and something for dinner – evening sorted.
