Besides flying to the closest mitsuwa in Chicago, where can I get me some hon-mirin? I will try calling Ozawa tomorrow but I seriously don't think it's a good idea for me to buy 18L of mirin at once.

For clarity, hon-mirin is real mirin w/ alcohol. The stuff we get in markets have barely any in it, less than 1% to 0.

I run into the same problem w/ chinese cooking wine, but that's solved by visiting Chinatown and doing the cough cough wink wink.
