šBucho featuring
Yamachan/
Shinjuku Gyoen-mae:
Sake bar
₯5315-4688
€Data
A very casual, all-
you-can-drink pre-
mium sake bar, Yama-
chan combines the
best aspects of an
industry sake-tast-
ing event (lots of
varieties freely
available, at a
reasonable all-in-
clusive price) and a
typical urban sake-
tasting bar (a care-
fully chosen selec-
tion of bottles, and
chairs where you can
sit down). The bar's
unique self-pour
policy is perhaps
the best feature -
it means that you
can try out little
sips from lots of
different bottles
until you find some-
thing you love.

Finding an amazing
sake here is just a
matter of time, as
the collection is
stellar - ranging
from top-grade of-
ferings from famous
labels to hidden
gems produced by
obscure small brew-
eries. Bottles are
lined up in glass-
paneled refrigera-
tors, with some
sixty choices on the
ordinary menu (from
which you can drink
freely until closing
time) plus a handful
of super-premium
labels that command
a small surcharge
(Y290-430 per 90ml
shot). There are
also four or five
extra-special bot-
tles of the day,
from among which
each customer can
choose one variety
for a bonus tasting
during the course of
the evening.

Note that there is
no food served, but
you're encouraged to
bring your own
snacks from a nearby
convenience store or
grocery, or you can
even order pizza to
be delivered. Budget
Y3240 for all the
sake you can drink,
plus whatever you
wish to spend at the
grocery store. Their
online reservation
calendar can be
found at airrsv.net/
