Located in a 1970s style building by Shimbashi station is this Nagano Prefecture liquor shop/bar Prices are basically retail so itís a great place to try sake, beer and cider from Northern Japan. Very popular place with a "Kura" or storehouse room in the back with to go bottles. Grab something yourself if your kanji isnít up to reading the menu taped to the cash register. Fun cheap place for tickers.

Cool little standing bar in the small shopping court, focused on Nagano products. 2 taps of solid recent brews, served in one size, good bottle selection of most Nagano classics and seasonals. Amazing selection of sake, better ask the bartender for sampler suggestions. Great prices, a must-stop dive bar when in the Shimbashi area.

Stopped here for a bit with TimE and Tim during a pub crawl. Small standing room bar with mostly bottled/canned craft beer and a good amount of sake. A bit of wiggling around necessary when itís a bit packed. Nice assortment of Shiga Kogen and other stuff in the backroom. Nice prices. Nice small plates of Japanese eats. Think the menus were all in Japanese but you could probably make it by with some basic English. Left with a good amount of mostly Shiga Kogen for cheaper than expected.

Tiny little sake shop that has craft beer as well. Standing only so a little tight, but the draw is the great prices. Bottles in the back fridge were super cheap for Japan. Convenient location makes this a great little spot.

First stop on a great RB pub crawl organized by TimE and his co-conspirators in March 2013, which I can now rate since Iíve documented #1k. Small place primarily devoted to sake from Nagano (duh), but with two interesting beer taps up front, and a fridge with decent bottles in the back. Friendly, flexible, helpful staff. Worth seeking out.

Small place that is half store half stand up bar. Same price if you get it there or take away. Just grab what you want from the fridges in back and pay in front. Great selection of sake, even if Iím not a sake expert. Great selection of Nagano micros.

Amazing place. Went on a Wednesday afternoon and it was just me a couple of old sake-drinking men. Barman was very helpful and really friendly. Prices are very good and the selection is nice too. Quite unusual to drink bottles here. Saying that, I did have the two taps and then went on to sake. Sake selection was bewildering so went with the recommendation of the barman. Tasting set of three for •500. Pretty good value. Was speaking to someone who said it gets busy in the evening, but the weekday afternoon thing really worked for me.

Told about this by TimE. Came out the wrong side of Shimbashi and ended up walking around the wrong arcade market. Found it in the end. Inside a shopping centre/ arcade. Fridge of beers did not seem to be accessible in person an I had to try and communicate what I wanted. Managed to get some Shiga Kogens, but not everything I wanted. Guy tried to be helpful though. Good little spot off the beaten track.

A place to buy great Nagano beer (Shiga Kogen,Yoho, OhLaHo etc) ans sake for cellar door prices and drink on premises. Not much more to say. Small, non descript hang out otherwise. Great place to drink good beer without having to drink it on the street like a barbarian!

This is a great place to chill for a bit and drink some Nagano beers cheaply in bottles or cans. No chairs, so you wonít be here all night, but the beers are good and the food cheap and tasty. Youíll find some beers that are not available elsewhere in the capital. Lots of sake too.
