Kuwabara Shoten in Gotanda and Nurukan Sato in Shibuya are two new Tokyo sake bars. For those unfamiliar with Japanese sake and izakaya restaurants, sake may seem intimidating. However, with its wide variety of flavors and styles, there's definitely something for everyone.

Kuwabara Shoten

Located a few minutes from Gotanda Station, Kuwabara Shoten is a gourmet boutique and bottle shop, as well as a hip sake bar. Despite its modern interior, this is a family business that's been operating since 1915. Featuring sake and delicacies from all over Japan, this standing bar is the perfect place to meet friends both old and new. There are 40 sake brands featured on the rotating "Sake of the Day" menu, all of which can be enjoyed in 30 ml, 60 ml, and 180 ml sizes. If you find a new favorite, you can buy a bottle to bring home.

Not a sake drinker? Not to worry—craft beer, sake-flavored ice cream, fruit-based drinks such as cider, and a variety of small Japanese dishes are also available.
