Craft Beer Base Front

Craft Beer Base, which happens to be the first in the chain of bottle shops and bars in Osaka, could easily be mistaken for being a workshop or simply someone’s house when you’re in the area. Situated on the backstreets of Ōyodominami, Craft Beer Base is perhaps Osaka’s most popular, though not the biggest, bottle shop in the area, offering a wide …

Chouzaemon

It’s been a while since we’ve added some online shops. Not for want of trying but mainly because when you already have some very good online stores, it’s hard to move away but with Chouzaemon, then we’re happy to try something else. Chouzaemon specialises in selling sake and wine, but they also have an extensive online selection of domestic craft beers …

Beers x Beers Logo

Beers x Beers is an online store that sells Japanese craft beer but with two catches. The beers aren’t sold individually – rather they are sold in sets from the breweries. While this isn’t good for people looking for individuals beers from a brewery, it does give you the chance to try some beers that are not easy to hunt down …

Maruho Saketen in Nishi-ku, Osaka

Maruho Saketen

It’s becoming harder and harder to find online stores that have more than a few kinds of domestic craft beer in stock but Maruho Saketen, a shop that has its front on Raketen – I hear the groan among you – offers some variety. Maruho Saketen has a decent range of the main craft beer breweries in Japan, with 20 different …

It’s hard to find new online shops to buy beer, besides looking at breweries, but we keep trying and we found Kameya, an online retailer that uses the Rakuten store as one of their outlets for their shop. We came across it while doing a search from some Shiga Kogen limited edition beer and boom, this place had what we wanted …

Kishimoto Saketen

It’s been awhile since we’ve updated the online listings, what with having so many decent bottle shops a short train journey away, there has been little need to order online. However, we like Japanese craft beer from across Japan and after a search on Rakuten, I found myself ordering from Kishimoto Saketen, an online shop based in Niigata prefecture. Moreover, …

Yamaoka Saketen in Botanhoku-cho, Kyoto

Yamaoka Sake Shop 1

It’s not often that a small store manages to become notice nationwide, but Yamaoka Saketen deserves its reputation. Ever since I found out I was going to Kyoto on a business trip, Yamaoka Saketen was high up on the list of places I wanted to visit. Temples? Pfft. Castles? Meh. Geishas? Who. Kyoto may be a cultural centre of wonders but …

World Beer Market in Kita-Senju

World Beer Market

Craft Liquors

Craft Liquors is an online shop that sells Japanese craft beer more from the Kansai and Kyushu regions of Japan. They do sell some beers from other parts of Japan, but as Craft Liquors is based in Tokyo, most of their stock comes from near Tokyo. However, some of the smaller craft beer breweries such as Hideji Beer and Hiryoyuki …
