Hasegawa Saketen

This shop is probably the most convenient given that it has so many locations across Tokyo, such as in Kameido Azabujuban, Omotesando, Tokyo station, etc. Some branches are like actual bars, whereas some are more just like sake stores.

Sawanoi

Ozawa brewery was founded over 300 years ago and is surrounded by natural beauty, although it is located in the Tokyo Metropolitan area. So you can enjoy your sake tasting while enjoying the beautiful view as well!
