Ogawamachi: Sake bar
Toshimaya (Ogawamachi: Sake bar)
Open 10am-10pm daily.
no smoking: No smoking

This friendly standing bar showcases twenty different sakes from Toshimaya Brewery, a western-Tokyo kura with a distinguished 400-year history. Sake is served in 30ml, 60ml and 100ml sizes, so it's easy to put together your own tasting flight, or challenge yourself to try them all.

There's a fairly extensive food menu, much bigger than is typical for a bar like this. Daily specials during a recent visit featured ambitious snacks like goat cheese with white fig sauce, avocado cream cheese, smoked duck, and tuna sashimi. The regular menu covers more typical sake-drinking dishes like grilled ray fin, mentaiko, dried fruit, cheeses and potato salad.

Sake is mostly priced from Y200-250 (for a small 30ml glass), and most snacks are Y300-500. They offer take-out bentos at lunchtime.

Chiyoda-ku, Kanda Nishikicho 2-2-1, Kanda Square.
