Experience Details
While sake is refreshing on its own, paired with food, it can enhance the flavors of any meal. Knowing how to pair sake and food is anything but simple, however, but is precisely the challenge that Mutsu Oyama, restaurant manager of Niku no Himaraya to Nomuno restaurant in Tsukiji, decided to master. A sake lover, he has dedicated himself to studying the intricacies of Japan’s national drink, using his English language ability to share these insights with the world. From first-timers to connoisseurs, anyone can join this sake masterclass led by Oyama-san at the restaurant he manages. He will explain all there is to know, from the basics of sake brewing to what makes each variety different, and you'll put the theory into practice by drinking your way through 10 distinct varieties paired with light bites. Daiginjo, junmai, nigori (cloudy) sake, sparkling, raw, and even hot sake are all on the menu so you can taste just how versatile nihonshu can be. While Tsukiji is best known for its fish market, the area is also home to great restaurants beyond the sushi or seafood circuit. Such is the case of Niku no Himaraya to Nomuno, known for its staggering mountain-shaped servings of meat (hence the mention of the Himalayan mountain range in the restaurant name.) Besides meat, the restaurant also has a deep appreciation for sake, one which Oyama-san is delighted to share in each of the tastings he offers.
