Fukushima Prefecture is justifiably famous for their excellent sake, and you can try several of them in one sitting in the sake-tasting corner of this antenna shop. Three-part tasting flights are Y1000, and there are around 22 different sake to choose from. (There are tasting notes in English, or you can ask the staff for advice if you need help choosing.)

The bar area is in operation from 4-8pm (last order is 7:30), with earlier hours on Sundays. A tiny plate of local sake-drinking delicacies (Y200) is an excellent accompaniment to your drinks, and at lunchtime you can enjoy a full-size bento-style lunch, with four different types available. Free tea is provided to go with your bento, and bentos are also ready to take out

Near the tasting counter is a well-stocked sake retail area, with more than 100 sake by the bottle, many of them otherwise hard to find in Tokyo. There's also a good assortment of food - fresh produce; fruit jams and preserves; many types of miso and soy sauce; soba, udon and rice noodles; twelve kinds of packaged curry; kamaboko fish cakes; pickles and ice cream. The crafts area of the shop handles tableware, glassware, wooden dolls and other decorative items.
