This was a great experience! We tried many different kinds of sake which were very different than the ones we’ve had in the USA. She showed us a presentation on the computer as well as some videos on how sake was made. We really enjoyed this fun and educational experience!

A great introductory session to sake. We really loved the lesson and the quiz. If you have 60 minutes, this is 100% worth it - if anything, try and do this BEFORE you hit the town and get a little knowledge and history under your belt!

Omakase Sake Tasting Guided by Sommeliers in Chiyoda (Tokyo)
Tastings
Booked a sake tour on our first day in Japan as a way to become immersed in Japan and Seigo totally delivered. He is a total gentleman, with the knowledge of a scholar and skills and experience of a professional. We were very impressed by his in depth facts and historical context of every street, shop, and brewer. He is a certified sake sommelier and possibly the nicest, kindest person. We spent a great deal of time together talking about topics outside his wheelhouse too with great comfort. I would recommend this tour, and Seigo in particular, for anyone seeking an authentic, memorable experience.
