Kuri/
Ginza: Sake bar
₯3573-8033
€Data
Sliding open the
door of Kuri feels
like unearthing a
secret treasure.
Hidden on the second
floor of a drab
building in Ginza,
this cozy bar seats
a scant thirteen,
yet boasts a menu
featuring over 100
varieties of sake.
The modern Japanese
decor deftly employs
noren curtains, dark
wood, and soft
lights to create an
intimate and invit-
ing space. Sake
bottles are attrac-
tively displayed
behind the bar on a
tall shelf set into
the wall. There's
room for six at the
bar, with a handful
of small tables on
the other side of a
slatted-wood parti-
tion.

Sake is the star
here: the menu
changes weekly and
includes a number of
seasonal, limited-
edition, and aged
items (the bar is
related to the sake
shop Kurihara in
Hiroo). Servings are
available in three
sizes - 60ml, 120ml,
and 180ml - but the
Y2000 tasting sets
(a flight of six
60ml cups) are high-
ly recommended.
Should you tire of
sake, you can choose
from 20-30 kinds of
shochu (available in
45ml and 95ml serv-
ings starting at
Y300 per glass).

They don't serve
much in the way of
food, so dinner here
is not an option.
The food menu is
comprised of savory
snacks from all over
Japan - herring
pickled with sansho
from Fukushima, tofu
marinated in chunky
miso from Kumamoto,
hotaru ika no shio-
kara from Toyama.
Budget around Y3500
per person (Y800
seating charge in-
cludes an assortment
of small snacks).
