Regional foods are celebrated in Japan and the best place to explore these in Tokyo are at “antenna shops”. At these shops you will find artisan sake and shochu (distilled spirit), miso, pickles, sweets, crackers, and at some shops, seafood and meat products. Near Shinjuku station is the Miyazaki prefecture antenna shop. The shops are right next to each other at the South exit (Shinjuku Minami Guchi). Antenna shops also carry tourist brochures so if you plan on traveling to a certain prefecture, check out the antenna shop before you go to do some research on the area.

Shibuya-ku, Yoyogi 2-2-1, Shinjuku Sazan Terrace
11:00 – 21:00, no holidays
Station: Shinjuku JR Station’s Minami Guchi (South Exit)
This is one of my favorite antenna shops in the city for its shochu (distilled spirits) on the second floor. If you come at the beginning of the month the shop is allocated limited edition shochu from Miyazaki.
