This tiny bar in the basement of a Shinjuku building, so it's not guaranteed you'll be able to find a spot if you go. It's a standing bar, and around 12 people can get in.
The staff is incredibly helpful and will gladly recommend different interesting types of sake. This place is awesome!

Beautifully located on the 40th floor of the Park Hyatt Tokyo hotel. If you're willing to splurge a little, you can enjoy finely selected ingredients paired with delicious sake. It will be a an unforgettable Japanese dining experience. Since it is located on the 40th floor, it offers a breathtaking view over Tokyo.

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!

I love traveling and discovering new cuisines. Japan has a panoply of local dishes to try. I also love yoga, coffee, reading, and cycling.
