Experience Details
Keen to become a Japanese sake expert? Then, this Tokyo sake tasting is your gateway to get there! Learn all about Japanese sake (known as nihonshu), a drink made from fermented rice. Try four different types of Japanese sake and learn all about the process of making it, starting from the foundations of high-quality rice, water, and koji. You’ll be astounded by the variety of sake flavors. Using the same basic ingredients, different techniques and brewing conditions can change the sweetness and crispness of the final product. Different degrees of polishing the rice also have a huge impact on the flavor (and the price tag). Today, there is even a Japanese sake boom, with inventive forms of this beloved beverage popping up all the time, like sparkling sake! With so many varieties of sake, it may seem intimidating to learn about Japanese sake, but this Tokyo Sake Tasting will make discovering the flavors of Japanese nihonshu fun and easy to understand!

Experience Location
Home to the famous Sensoji Temple, a Buddhist temple built in the 7th century, Asakusa overflows with rich history and traditional culture. In the past, Asakusa was Tokyo’s leading entertainment district, a red light district with a number of kabuki theaters. Most of Asakusa was destroyed during World War II, but it has since grown into one of Tokyo's most visited tourist spots. Here, you'll find Nakamise Dori, a bustling shopping street lined with local snack and souvenir shops. Asakusa also has other attractions such as parks, public baths, and museums.
