HK$3500 is Yen 48,000. That seems to me like it would fly off the shelves in Tokyo, given Yamazaki 12 is Yen 20,000, and the 18Y is 75,000... In any case, The Sherry limited just not available in Tokyo anymore...The Hibiki`s though are pricey...

I think that "ask for staff" sign = guaranteed out of stock, daizawaguy. I found a shop in Kobe with Yamazaki and Hakushu 12 for 11,000 yen, and the store guy said, no stock, that was just a box.
Anyway, Nikka 12 appears to be plenty at Takashimaya in Kyoto.

Thats BIG in Ginza - they only release a few a day though...best to get there at 12 noon. By six, the allocation is all gone. Enquire with a firm tone - I mean "One bottle of Hikiki please", versus "Do you have any Hibiki today?"...The box is behind the counter - makes sense though that under list price they can control the allocation. Same place I purchased Nikka Yoichi Moscatel for Yen 14,800 when the list was Yen 15,000 I believe, and other shops were already north of Yen 50,000. Its now Yen 69,000 at cheapest...

BiG owner is one of the friendliest people I've met. Don't really think it's necessary to be rude or firm. If he has it, he will sell it to you. There are many places to get Harmony at similar 4k prices anyway. I've seen it for 3,900 in Ikebukuro. In either event, it's a waste of a luggage space for anyone traveling back to US.
