Sake Tasting Spots

Last Friday, I visited two sake-related establishments. If you are staying Tokyo and want to go out for a casual sake experience, these places are my recommendation.

日本の酒情報館 (Sake Plaza)
Sake Plaza offers sake for tasting, and you can drink five different kinds of sake for 525 yen. They provide a sake list, from which you can select five different sakes for tasting.

名酒センター (Sake Center)
While Sake Plaza is a kind of sake showroom, Sake Center is something like a standing-up bar. They provide various types of sake from different places in Japan. Select three favorite bottles of sake, for which you are supposed to pay 500 yen (this is the minimum price and the price may be higher depending on sake you choose).
You can enjoy more types of sake here than at Sake Plaza.
