Sadly, this gorgeous shop has closed.
Fukumitsuya is a sake shop representing a brewery from Kanazawa that opened in 1625. Rest your feet at the small tasting bar and try a few before purchasing. The bottles are stored in small box refrigerators in the back of the shop, as all good quality sake should be. There is a nice selection of cups and bottles, both traditional and modern, for serving sake at home. Fukumitsuya has a wide selection of sake including Kyoka with gold flakes, aged up to 10 years “Hatsugokoro”, and sake based sparkling cocktails. There is a sugidama (cedar ball) hanging over the door. Traditionally these are used at sake breweries to designate when the sake is done fermenting and is ready to be consumed.
Fukumitsuya also has a shop in Roppongi’s Midtown as well as in Futakotamagawa in the same building as Takashimaya.
