Spend an evening under the sea at Ikebukuro’s new Kirameki (1-22-5 Higashi-Ikebukuro, Toshima-ku; http://r.gnavi.co.jp/a058409), where patrons looking for privacy can snag a VIP koshitsu surrounded by aquariums filled with tropical fish. The selection of umeshu features unusual varieties made with green tea (¥480) and infused with togarashi pepper (¥550), along with the health- and beauty-promoting Ume Bijin (¥580). Those looking for something a little sturdier should find it among the lists of shochu (¥400-¥600) and whiskey (from ¥450).
