Experience Details
Leaving the Shinjuku 3 Chome train station, we will start our tour at a local sake bar popular among nearby residents. Sake, made through a long rice fermentation process, is a traditional Japanese alcohol enjoyed by many all year long. At the sake bar, your guide will order and serve you many different types of sake, including sparkling, cloudy, yamahai, unpasteurized, and a few other varieties. While sampling each sake, you will be given an explanation of the differences between each sake, a translation of the Japanese sake bottle's label, and how each is created. They will also provide recommendations for the perfect temperature at which each sake should be drunk, as particular sake is meant to be enjoyed either chilled, warm, or at room temperature. You, your fellow tour members, and your guide will share and discuss any initial impressions of each different sake. You will also be provided a "sake review" document for writing down and rating each sake, which you may bring home and keep for reference when buying sake on your own. During this experience, you will enjoy great conversation with friends, taste and learn about different kinds of Japanese sake, and receive recommendations for how each sake should be consumed and the best food pairings.
