Nothing in Japan can compare to Ohtsuki. Sure you have your Tanakaya and your Popeye, etc... but Ohtsuki is the real treasure of Japan. Private imports of Belgian beers you will not find anywhere else, with the best prices you will ever see in Japan. The owner Ohtsuki-san is super friendly and knowledgeable. If you visit, be sure to bring a lot of money, because it’s hard to walk away from the beers he’s got there.

Well worth visiting. Great selection of lambics and they were happy to send to my house in Tokyo for about ¥800 which made me cut loose and buy a bit more than i should have. Prices are better than some of the city centre shops in Brussels so that says something. They tolerated my mistake-ridden Japanese but I believe they can speak English.

A great place for Belgian beers in suburban Osaka. Just a few shelves of beer in a walk in cellar full of sake, with a few cases of beer on the floor. Great prices for Japan as this shop imports beers as well. The service is top knotch with knowledgeable staff who were happy to let us crack open a few of our recent purchases and have a seat for a drink in the shop. The owner is friendly and so are the staff, if the shelves are missing something you want (only katakana tags on the shelves) just ask the staff and quite possibly it is hiding in a corner somewhere. A must for lovers of lambic visiting Kansai, I will be back next winter to get a bunch of Belgian Christmas beers!

Closest train station is JR Kishibe(10-15 minute walk from the station). Key site for belgian beers especially lambics in Japan. Wonderful.

Great store in a strange place in suburban north Osaka. Closest train station is JR Kishibe. They sell only two things: craft sake and Belgian beer. Roughly 150 different Belgians, including many lambics, de Dolle, de Ranke, Dupont. Prices are the best in Japan for these beers. Selection of proper lambics is the best I’ve seen outside of Belgium. A pain to get to, though he will ship the beer to your house (in Japan) for ¥500. Owner is a great guy who will speak English.
