Buying Wine In Tokyo 2021
If beer and wine aren't your thing, Night Owl has you covered, too. There's an eclectic roster of obscure yet enticing spirits on offer, ranging from Tasmanian whisky to Italian aperitifs and German gin.

Every supermarket has an alcohol section. They are typically divided into sections for beer, Chu-hi style coolers, wine, traditional Japanese alcohol like shochu or sake and of course the section for spirits.
I will be staying at Conrad Hotel in Minato and mainly be travelling to Marunouchi for work. Any great wine shop nearby the hotel or in Marunouchi with good selection of italian/french wine at reasonable price?
I never have Japanese wines although it is very cheap.

Our summer is rainy and humid. It is the worst quality in the world. Even imported Chile wines are better. We have French Chablis sold at supermarkets with tag price about 2000 yen for 650ml bottle. If you like dry wine, try Chablis which is the best white wine in the world.
My experience trying to buy French wine in (ta && ta.queueForLoad ? ta.queueForLoad : function(f, g)document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', f);)(function()ta.trackEventOnPage('postLinkInline', 'impression', 'postLinks-53683069', '');, 'log_autolink_impression');Tokyo last year was that it was at least twice as expensive as in France. IMO you're much better off looking at good quality sake. If London's anything to go by, top grade sake is half the price in Tokyo. And if you haven't drunk chilled, good quality sake, you don't know what you're missing.
Recommended are Daiginjo premium classes of Kubota (Niigata), Hakkaisan (Niigata), Koshino Kanbai (Niigata), Dewazakura (Yamagata), Nambu Bijin (Iwate), Ichinokura (Miyagi). After drinking those chilled, you may question whether French wine makes sense in Japan (well it does, but you know what I mean).
Japanese wines being not sensible would make serious wine makers in Yamanashi disappointed, as recent development in quality of premium class wines are quite something. Nikka and Suntory's good whiskey don't shy away from Scotch.
Buying alcohol in Tokyo or Narita Airport?2012/8/25 02:18 The alcohol here in Tokyo is so CHEAP compared back to home.I had passed through Malaysia before I got to Japan and the prices in Malaysia's duty free store seemed the same you would find in Canada. Canada's duty free stores are even worse. Alcohol is more expensive than if you bought it in Vancouver.My question is: Will Narita's duty free stores be cheaper than if I bought alcohol in Tokyo? Or will they actually be cheaper than the stores in Tokyo?I'm planning to get some red wine/sake/ and soju if the duty free store has it.by tonten
