This small sake retailer has a stand-up counter where you can try before you buy - there are usually around seven different sake bottles open, with two-part tasting flights priced from Y500 or single shots from Y300. Since the Kappabashi district has turned into a tourist attraction in recent years, there's quite a bit of English-language information provided for the benefit of foreign visitors.
