Where to buy Scotch Whiskey in Tokyo, Japan

Some whisky I drank in 2014

In-Person Stores — Single Shops

💖Liquors Hasegawa is well known with tourists, but as you can sample many bottles in the store for a nominal ¥100–200 fee. Make sure you go to both locations in Yaesu; the second location is smaller, but carries interesting stock, like age-statement Japanese whisky.

In-Person Stores — Chains

💖Shinanoya is the chain with the best selection of Scotch Whisky in Tokyo; in particular, the Shinjuku Kabuchiko and Ginza locations often have excellent bottles.

In-Person Stores — Department Stores

Isetan, Mitsukoshi, BIC Camera, Takashimaya, Daimaru, Don Quijote and more all stock spirits — unlike department stores in the US. Richard has written a better list than I will ever write, so go read his post @ https://www.nomunication.jp/2019/08/13/where-to-buy-japanese-whisky-in-tokyo-maybe/
