Shochu Bar Sunkujira

Kazuki Yanagisono, Shochu Bar Sunkujira’s owner and founder, specialises in one thing: shochu, the famed Kyushuan spirit. The bar’s collection of shochu is astonishing, with a curated selection of 460 bottles occupying the shop’s back wall. 70% of these are sourced directly from distilleries in Kagoshima and potato, rice and wheat-based shochu are on offer. The bar, which is attended by the amicable Kazuki and his lovely wife, Michiyo, has a homely but modern feel, with five counter seats and a four person zashiki-style drinking area.

Shochu ¥580~¥980, Japanese sake ¥680~¥980, Food and others: ¥680~, Table charge: ¥500
