Attached to the Toyama Prefecture antenna shop, this very specialized bar serves seventeen different sake produced in Toyama. Sake is Y700 for a glass, or you can order a three-part tasting flight for the same price. Explanations and tasting notes are in Japanese, but you can ask the staff for advice.

While you're tasting your way through the prefecture, you can enjoy a selection of local Toyama-style delicacies to go with your drinks. These are simple snacks like kamaboko fish cakes and pickled turnips. Unlike some tasting bars, there's plenty of seating here, either at the bar-counter or at small cafe-style tables facing the street.

If you find a sake that you particularly like, the antenna shop next door probably sells it by the bottle, although you'll have to get there by 7:30 before they close.
