This futuristic sake retailer stocks more than 150 kinds of sake, including nine that are exclusive to this shop. Much of the stock seems aimed at novice sake drinkers, with a much higher proportion of strikingly designed labels than in a typical sake shop.

You can try out almost any of the bottles they carry, although Y480 for a small tasting-size pour isn't exactly a bargain. There's a small menu of sake snacks to go with your drinks, priced at around Y500-600 a plate.
