Specialty liquor store for Japanese sake/shochu?

nakni | Jun 15, 201211:57 PM     5

I was wondering if there are any liquor stores that have more and rarer options for sake or shochu than what the Japanese supermarkets typically offer. I remember walking into a liquor store in a strip mall in Little Osaka (where Nijiya Market and Beard Papa are) and being disappointed that they didn't really offer anything special. I'm looking at the Westside/South Bay area. The Beverage Warehouse is a mandatory destination when in town anyway, so scratch them off the list.

And on a similar tangent: I'm assuming Nikka whisky hasn't made it into the area yet?
