Sake Tasting in Tokyo; Enjoying Different Flavorful Notes of Sake.

When visiting Japan, you soon realize that Sake is to Japan what wine is to France. There is an incredibly extensive list of types of sake in Japan. Just like wine, sake can be sweet or dry and can have different flavor-notes, such as spices, herbs, flowers, and fruits. Let's embark on a flavor-filled journey and discover sake tasting in Tokyo!

Feel free to follow favy!

Nihonshu Stand Moto

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!

Kuri

This tiny bar in Ginza only offers less than a dozen seats, but it has a wide selection of over 100 sakes to choose from.
There is a ¥2000 tasting set (a flight of six 60ml cups). Please note there is a ¥800 cover charge.

Meishu Center

The meishu center is a sake store that also doubles as a bar. There are over 100 bottles to choose from. You can of course buy some of them and try them at home, or you can also try the sake tasting on the spot. You can also make your own tasting flight or ask the staff to give you advice in accordance to your taste.
Price: By the glass ranges from ¥200~

Dassai bar 23

Dassai has opened a bar in the Tokyo Square garden. There are various sake types to choose from, and you can also choose between 5 sake tasting sets.
Please note that there is a ¥1000 service charge per person.

Kozue

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!
