At Narita T2 this morning. All Suntory LE sold out. Only thing available was Hibiki Harmony MS (which I can buy almost anywhere) and the new AO

Similar price to Grand Hyatt, but at least this one comes with a box 😂

Ichiro's is crazy right now. Almost 1000USD on auction for the US edition. I tried it at a local bar and that should be a $100 bottle tops. Too many flippers driving up the prices!

Interesting how so many Tokyo hotels have collaborated with Ichiro's... The Peninsula, ANA Intercontinental, Grand Hyatt and now Ritz Carlton. Not sure if the Ritz Carlton box is worth the extra 20,000 yen though. I think the Grand Hyatt was about 65,000 yen and the Ritz Carlton was 85,000 yen.

Having said that... do you know if the Ritz had more bottles for sale?

They had less. Only 250 bottles of this one. Also this is the RC were talking about, of course everything they sell will be marked up like crazy !

Wonder if NRT and HND will do the same

I’m flying INTO KIX soon but out of NRT. Wonder if they’ll let me pick up with an inbound boarding pass..

No, they won't. The of whole purpose of duty free is that the goods are not taxed since they will be consumed outside the country.

KIX and NRT now have duty free arrival shops. The NRT version explicitly excludes domestic liquor, but judging from the KIX one's list, they do as well.

Yes, as you mention those shops don't carry any Suntory and OP's question was specifically about the lottery.
