salami and rye bread in tokyo?

I'm meeting a friend in Tokyo who has been traveling for about 6 months. He's craving salami and rye bread....I can't bring it from the US because of customs. Are these items easy to find in department store basement supermarkets? When I lived in Japan, my local supermarket didn't have these foods, but I lived pretty far from Tokyo.

We'll probably be walking around major stops on the Yamanote line (Ueno, Asakusa, Shinjuku, Harajuku and Shibuya).

New to Sunset Park and looking for wine!

There's a brand new wine & liquor shop between 50th and 51st on 8th Avenue.

Try 60th Street Wine and Spirits between 7/8 Avenues. It's not too far from the 8 Ave N Station. They have a big selection of wine and Japanese sake.

By the way--C-Town is tolerable, but the Pathmark at 60/13th is much better.
