Duty-free Japanese liquor shop Sorano Sakagura will open at Central Japan International Airport on January 24.

Sorano Sakagura is the first Japanese liquor specialty duty-free shop in a Japanese airport, and will specialize in alcoholic drinks from across the country, offering around 200 products, including sake and shōchū. It will also sell limited edition Sorano Sakagura liquors jointly developed with local breweries from Aichi, Gifu and Mie Prefectures. The Japanese liquors handled at existing stores in the International Departure Lobby will be sold at Sorano Sakagura.

The 90m2  (969ft2 ) shop will be near Gate 20 in the International Departure Lobby, after security, and will open from 6:45am-10:00pm daily.

The shop opening is part of a drive by Centrair to make the airport a place where international visitors “can experience Japanese culture, its traditions, its gastronomy and, of course, its liquors”.
