After winning several awards, Japanese whisky now has a stellar global reputation and the number of craft distilleries is on the rise. At BEM, on a narrow back street in Daimyo, you can enjoy a wide range of these Japanese whiskies, including a selection of rare vintage bottles. Owner Toshihiko Sano and bar manager Kiyohito Morizono traveled all over the country to purchase the craft whiskies and vintage bottles, but their prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is casual. Why not stop by and enjoy some one-of-a-kind whiskies?
