9F, 1-13-7 Nishi-Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo, Japan

Hiroyasu Kayama's charming bar resembles an apothecary thanks to numerous herbal infusions and unusual potions that line the shelves. Clad in a white jacket, the bartender can often be found grinding roots, herbs and spices grown on his family's own plot of land, which add complexity to aromatic cocktails based on gin, whisky, absinthe and amaro. They are also used in homemade liqueurs – the bar is well-known for making its own version of Campari.
