Mitsuya in Nishiogikubo is one of THE best sake shops around Tokyo. We really like going to their tasting to learn about sake and kura. Most of the sake we have blogged is available at Mitsuya.
So, wondering what it’s like and how to get there? I picked up some sake we ordered last month and took the opportunity to get some pictures inside the store. I also got some pictures around the neighborhood to make it a bit easier for people to find the shop.
Oh, if you are in the area, they are hosting a tasiting on February 11th, 12 noon to 7:00pm and February 12th, 12 noon to 6:30pm. Just drop in if you like- no reservations needed. What do they have? Sounds like they have 15-year-old gold medal sake, some special nama, and other hard to find sakes. So, make sure to drop by and check it out.
In addition, they have shochu and wine.
