Easy to find. Take a left outside Mejiro Station. Then before you catch your breath, look left just before the McDonald’s, go downstairs to the best beer selection in Tokyo. Expensive, but what isn’t in Tokyo?

A great bottle shop with a very impressive bottle list. The staff was amazing as they even bubble wrapped each of my bottles so I could secure it in my luggage. My only critique would be to carry more Japanese beer. Massive liquor selection as well!!

A basement shop next to Mejiro station. Great selection of international craft beers. They also have a dedicated cooler for japanese beers. Prices are not expensive.

Tanakaya is a great liquor/wine/beer store. Very close walk to the Mejiro JR station (right on the Yamanote line). It has a huge beer selection, mostly American, British, Belgian, and Japanese. Very heavy on Belgian lambics and krieks. The one kick is that it’s cash only. Sent me looking for an ATM on my first visit. In addition to beer, this shop has one of the most extensive collection of various liquor that I have seen in Tokyo, at very nice prices. Huge selection of tequila, mezcal, armagnac, cognac, vodka, rum, gin, jenever, aquavit. Very nice single-malt and blended whisk(e)y section, with great representation from all over the world. Might need to head back soon.

austinpowers  (152) New York, New York | April 7, 2008
A truly outstanding store: 500 beers, about 90% of them foreign. All in coolers with cedar lining. Gorgeous method of display. The staff tries, but barely speaks english. About 400 high-end sakes, if you’re into that (which I am). They have Dogfish Fort, Utopias at about $160/bottle, Cantillon vintage lambics stored on their sides, a Traquair Jacobite (!) for $6, and rare scottish brews like Ossian and Inveralmond Sunset. They carry the Baird line plus about 30 other rare Japanese micros. No sapporo, asahi or macro stuff. brbr Don’t get lost - take the JR Yamanote line to Mejiro. Once you emerge, the store is on Shin-Ome-Kaido Ave. to your left (West) on the South side exactly 75 paces from the exit to Mejiro Station. It is in a basement, so it’s easy to miss the sign and the stairs down. Remember: 75 paces from the exit of Mejiro.

I really like this place, one of my favorite places to visit. Could spend 3 or 4 hundred dollars here easily. Check it out

what can you say that hasn’t been said before? great selection, although more of a focus on higher alcohol brews, particularly from the US. good prices and you will always find something surprising. If you’re spending an extended period in japan then this is the place to get hold of your beer. I would like a few more german and english beers, but this is a small quibble. enjoy...

Best liquor store for beer in Japan, though a little lacking in Japanese micros. Staff is pretty good, but can feel a bit cold even if they’re not. Gave me a discount once when my total added up to 11,111.

This place is crazy. I could easily have spent $1000 here. They have an amazing collection of US beers I can’t even find in Canada... The beer ’fridge’ is a work of art, all wooden. Japanese beer selection was a little weak, but they had some good ones like Isseki Nicho and a few Baird seasonals. Lots of rare Brewdog, Mikkeller, and Nogne O. Expensive, but about what it would cost me in Canada. If you’re in Tokyo and love alcohol of any kind it’s worth a visit or two!

Best liquor store I’ve found anywhere, Every time I pop in I’ve found something new, even found my all time favourite beer here. I wish they’d restock it. All round great selection international and local brews. (the spirits selection is also amazing). Prices very reasonable. It’s a win.
