British beer and food in Yamaya Wine Shop, Tokyo

Updated 20 September 2015

Yamaya is almost certainly the cheapest import shop in Tokyo- example prices given below. I was also very impressed with their British beer selection when I went in to the Omori branch today, probably the second best I’ve seen in Tokyo.

The ones I know how to get to:

Shinjuku – follow directions for Tokyo Opera City and it’s on your way.

Omori – It’s opposite (or possibly next to, depending on how you look at it) Ito-Yokado. Come out of the East exit and walk directly away from the station for about 5 minutes and you should be able to see Tsutaya video shop and then Ito Yokado in the distance.
