Sekiya


Post by Iain

Ever since the Disk Union in Kunitachi closed my visits there have been few and far between, but I was happy to make an exception for Sekiya. Attached to the Seiyu store on the south side of the station, it's a good spot to pick up staples or more unusual bottled beers.

When you enter the shop beers are on the left, with spirits & nihonshu on the right (downstairs is a rather pleasant wine cave). The main attraction is a fridge with around 200 different bottled beers. There is another unit with the usual suspects and chuhais etc, along with some of the more common craft beers like Ao-oni & Yona Yona. Japanese beers on offer seemed to centre around products from Hitachino Nest, Ozeno, and Sankt Gallen, but there were also a good number from Ishikawa Brewery and Umenishiki which personally I don't see that often.

Some of the more unusual (to me) bottles were San Michele Manon from Italy, and Traquair 50 Anniversary Ale, so along with a good selection of UK, USA, Belgian and German beers this could end up being a regular stop. They also sell Belgian beer glasses. Just wish that Disk Union was still there ...
