I've had a great sake experience at Sakeoh. Mr Matsumoto (the owner) has the finest selection of Japan's top sake's and his shop is truly the perfect place to have a sake tasting with friends. Mr Matsumoto is very welcoming, can tell you all about each and every sake he has in his selection, and the best part: you can take your own food and let Mr Matsumoto recommend the best sake's to go with it. It's the recipe for a great evening out with friends, family or colleagues. Not to miss if you're up for a local drinking experience of Japanese culture!

I visited Sakeoh to check out their sake selection and was not disappointed. amazing premium sakes all of the best quality. Knowledgeable staff, too! the owner speaks English, Chinese and Japanese! Once a week they offer a sake tasting counter, too. If you are interested in sake, highly recommended!

I visited Sakeoh with a few friends as we were traveling Japan over the New Year, having been recommended to us by people from the neighborhood. We came in expecting a small tasting but were really surprised by the vast selection of sake they had prepared! Immediately we were warmly greeted by not only the owner but the other guests who were eager to discuss the many sake and shochu that were available to try. Everyone there was so friendly!

The best (and most surprising) part was how well the owner explained the various kinds of sake to us from the components that made it to the brewing process and where it was brewed. It was obvious how much he enjoyed the craft and sharing it with others. He was even generous enough to give us suggestions on how to spend our New Year's Eve and, after we'd tried upwards of 20-30 incredible kinds of sake, sent us on our way with gifts from the shop!

Our experience at Sakeoh, learning about sake and meeting the people in the shop, was really one of the highlights of our time in Tokyo and it's a must-visit for anyone in Tokyo with even a little interest in sake!

We are expats in Japan and have some experience with Sake, but are not really experts. Therefore we always need some support when buying Sake. The shop offers a broad selection in different taste and price categories. The owner speaks English and was giving very helpful explanations about the differences between all the choices (how the Sake is brewed and what defines the taste, etc.). We were also allowed to taste which is very helpful as you may know that it is very hard to guess the taste of Sake even if you have the description how it was brewed... Cheers!

Yippee!! So glad to see Sakeoh is finally listed on Tripadvisor.
This is a GREAT Shop and the Owner is positively wonderful!!
We were spoiled by his tasty offerings and appreciated the depth of his knowledge and enthusiasm. If you're traveling through Japan he can cool pack your purchases and handily send it along to your next destination.
