Shinanoya Ginza

We will check the Shinanoya Liquor Store for bourbons and whiskys. Shinanoya has the best selection of Heaven Hill's bourbon in Japan. We have a good chance to find the Evan WIlliams 12year at these stores. Sometimes they stock wild turkey 12year and other good bourbons as well.

Liquor Mountain Ginza 777

Here we can try mini samples of a wide variety of bourbons, scotches and Japanese whiskys. Samples are roughly 200yen for a small 10ml pour. Of course, I can help you find your perfect whisky or bourbon - and find something that suits your taste. There are other Japanese whisky experts here that I can interpret for you.

Ginza 6 Shopping Mall

We will check the JWC whisky collection to see some of the rarest and most expensive Japanese whiskies ever made. After we can enjoy a shot or two of high end Suntory or Nikka whiskys. A 15ml pour starts around 500yen and goes up for highly aged whiskys. I can give recommendations based on your personal preferences. Furthermore, I can ask staff any questions you might have in Japanese.

Rare Yamazaki and More: Discover Ginza's Whiskey Oasis

Nestled in the heart of Ginza, Rare Whiskey Ginza offers a unique whiskey experience. Explore an extensive selection of premium Japanese whiskeys, from the iconic Yamazaki to the Hakushu and beyond.

Shibuya and Harajuku Tour

Grant was exceptional; he guided us on a walking tour through Shibuya, Harajuku, and nearby areas, creating a memorable experience for us. We were able to experience the public transport in Japan, and honestly it was really different from the public transport in the US. The highlight was our visit to the Pokemon Shop in Shibuya, which thrilled my son, a Pokemon enthusiast. It was truly a fantastic tour!

I will take you to the outer market of Tsukiji including its new fish retail area where you can see a lot of sea food. There are many food shops but popular ones are over crowded with long lines.
