Aki was AWESOME. On the day of the event he reached out via both email and WhatsApp to give us the specific meeting location (it's rather vague on the event page, which had us a little worried initially) and it was very easy to link up with him. During the tasting he was very energetic and upbeat which made it super engaging. Additionally, he is super knowledgeable when it comes to explaining the various nuances to the different types of sake. Everyone in my group learned a ton. Finally, he selected some excellent sakes. Our group weren't huge sake drinkers previously but enjoyed nearly all of the sakes we sampled. Oh and on top of all that- it was decent value as we got to try 7 different sakes (including the unpasteurized namazake type, which you can only get in Japan). Needless to say we all left there event buzzing.

I wanted to share my incredible experience attending a Sake Tasting and Takoyaki Cooking Class led by the amazing Momoko. It was an absolute highlight of my trip, and I can't stop raving about the expertise and enthusiasm she brought to the session. First and foremost, Momoko's knowledge of sake was truly impressive. Her passion for the craft shone through as she guided us through a delightful tasting experience, sharing fascinating insights into the different types of sake and their unique characteristics. Her ability to demystify the world of sake made the tasting accessible and enjoyable, even for someone like me who was relatively new to the experience. The Takoyaki cooking segment was equally fantastic! Momoko's clear instructions and hands-on guidance ensured that everyone in the class had a blast creating these delicious Japanese treats. Her friendly demeanor and encouragement created a warm and welcoming atmosphere, making the class not just educational but also a lot of fun. What sets Momoko apart is not just her knowledge and skills but her genuine passion for sharing the rich cultural aspects of sake and Takoyaki. Her engaging personality and ability to connect with participants added an extra layer of enjoyment to the entire experience. I would highly recommend Momoko's classes to anyone looking for a unique and memorable cultural experience.

I highly recommend this tour. Masa gave a very good introduction to Nagano and the world of sake. I am glad we were able to interact with other locals as well in learning about Nagano and sake. This tour gave a more personalized feel when traveling. Masa and anyone else we interacted with were also very knowledgeable and answered any questions I may have had throughout the tour.

Karen, our guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the area. She brought us to sake breweries which sold very good sake. She even brought us to a hole in the wall eatery which we would have never known about. Overall, an excellent trip..

Sake Tastings in Japan

Japan’s national beverage, Japanese sake is a must-try beverage when you’re visiting Japan. Also known as nihonshu, sake is a fermented rice wine that has been enjoyed for centuries. During a sake tasting in Japan, you can learn all about the production process of delicious sake, from polishing the rice to steaming, making koji and fermenting, and sake pressing and filtering. Made with just rice, water, and koji, Japanese sake seems like a simple beverage, but there are subtle differences in grades of sake and a wide variety of types that vary in complexity and flavor. With insights from a sake expert, you will explore the different types of sake, trying a variety of samples during sake tastings in Japan. Learn all about namazake, the “raw” unpasteurized sake, as well as grades of sake such as ginjo-shu and daiginjo-shu. There are sake tastings in Tokyo, Kyoto, Miyagi and more! Japanese sake tastings will open your mind and perk up your tastebuds!
