I went to Yamaya, and they didn't have any minis.
Okay, but how do you know all those prices?







Look at those displays at Conrad's lobby bar. I wish I had one of those.

Any limit per person on the Ichiros? Hopefully my buddy can grab me one next week.

Didn't see a sign says one per person. I only grab one due to already blown budget! Hopefully they will still be there when your friend flies out!

Yeah I got like 37 bottles this trip. Had to ask few coworkers and friends to help out but overall it is pretty good trip! Just no Hibiki 21 LE that I have been looking for.... This Ichiro's Travel Edition is limited to 610 bottles. Did not know that until I open the box... should've gotta one more. Oh well, can't be too greedy!

Would liquor store owners (not airport duty free) frown upon me if I brought my wife and mother in law to buy if it was one per person?

If if I were lucky enough to run into any stock that is

Some note "per group", so I would stagger the visit out - best not stand in the same line talking to each other -)

Australian Government impose a limit (2.25L total) on how many alcohol you can bring in, and all of those from one haul should be considered good enough for me and my friend. Start with NAS, then move onto aged variants.
2 bottles of Yamazaki 12 mini: Conrad minibar.
Hakushu NAS 180ml: I don't know which FamilyMart, but it is in Kobe, 1,200 yen per bottle (buy 4 of those and an empty bottle, and bottle it yourself)
Hibiki Japanese Harmony: Hasegawa, not cheap, but I got this right after I got off the bus from Mt. Fuji (Kawaguchiko)
Yamazaki NAS: same place as Hibiki.
Yamazaki Umeshu: Takashimaya in Kyoto. (the bottle looks like limited edition whisky. LOL)

I've never had a problem buying two bottles when with my spouse.
