A branch of the huge Kimijimaya liquor store in Yokohama, this Ginza outpost offers a good selection of sake and runs an informal standing bar corner as well. Fourteen types of sake range from Y300-900 for a small tasting-size glass, or you can try your luck with the pre-selected three-part tasting flight.

If you're not in a sake mood, there are shochu, wine and craft beer options, and several tiny but tasty snacks like smoked duck (Y600) and takoyaki (Y500). This is one of several standing sake bars in the immediate neighborhood, and just a minute from the Kochi antenna shop's basement sake-tasting counter.
