Yeah, I'm a big fan of yakimavalleyhops.com. Domestically(in the US), you can't beat their prices and their varieties change a lot.

Not to hijack this thread, but I'm in Korea now and will be in Tokyo the first week of January for winter vacation. Planning on bring a few+ pounds to give out as promotion for my online shop. Would love to meet up with any homebrewers in the area. Also, any tips on hostels, bars/pubs, food stuff, fun stuff? my email is ian@bruhahops.com

Looking forward to the experience. Just tried the Coedo Beniaka (Sweet Potato) and liked it.

I would love to show you around, but I live far from Tokyo, and far from anything craft beer. Baird Beer and the Yokohama Seasider Magazine both have frequent events and might be a nice place to start looking. In addition to breweries, sake and umeshu (plum wine) events might be nice.

I'm not in Tokyo either, but I live just down the road from the headquarters of Baird Beer Fishmarket Taproom and Brewery. If you make it down this way (Numazu city) I can introduce you to some of the guys around there. Have fun in Japan!

Thanks guys. Baird looks awesome. If I can't make it down south, I'll definitely be hitting up one of the taprooms. Yokohama looks interesting too. Would love to check out King Pelican.

Thanks for the info. Very helpful. I'm getting excited for this trip. PM your addresses and I'll send you each a couple oz. of our hops on the house.

Awesome guys. I'll plan on bringing some more when I visit next month. Hopefully some of us can meet up for a beer!

The only sources I know of inside the country are person to person trading, and even then it seems pretty slim as this thread has got little discussion so far on domestic rhizomes. As stated in earlier posts if you are trying to send from overseas somewhere then the best bet would be to call up a few rhizome distributors and see if they can do the paperwork required for international orders.

This makes me wonder, do international customs plant inspections/regulations apply to USA APO addresses if shipped from a mainland US address? Would a plant rhizome only require documentation if it crosses from a military compound into Japanese territory? I don't have the answer for that question and I don't have any contacts in US military to ask.

*Edit-* I posted the question to the Okinwawa brewing enthusiasts group on Facebook and got the response that customs regulations do apply. That means whether you send to a US military address or a Japanese address on Okinawa you will need to have the plant health certification done. A distributor that says they ship international will most likely know best what to do.
