Do you enjoy "SAKE" while staying in Japan?
Difference to "drink" and to "know"
We think, if you want to drink delicious SAKE, it is very easy now. Go "sake bar" around your office, you can see many many kinds of delicious sake on list. You just order one from the list by intuition, that's it.
However, if you want to know & enjoy SAKE more, that's another story. We hope you not just to drink, but to know about SAKE, because SAKE is worth to know as the essense of Japanse food culuture.
Difficultie: SAKE for foreiners
For example..., it is very difficult to explain the difference of each SAKE when your old friends come Japan and ask you. The "terminology" about SAKE is based on manufacturing process or Japanese tradition, too complicated for foreiners.
Moreover, it is really difficult to select suitable deliciou SAKE that match your dinner or party from the market shelf or web site by yourself. Too many SAKE brands and items in market are mixture of good and bad.
If, fortunally, you have good frind who knows about SAKE very well, and speak your languege, and always have plenty of time to help you, that's OK. But actually, no one have such friend.
As last resort, if you ask staff in SAKE store to recomend one that fit for your request, enough help can not be expected because of Language barriers.
But..., we can help you.

Language barriers to know SAKE:"Chinese Character"
We feel regret that there is difficulty to know about SAKE for non-Japanese speaker. As our opinion, the biggest obstacle for foreiners to know sake is "The terminology written in Chinese Character on LABEL" like "Daiginjo（大吟醸）", "Junmaiginjo(純米吟醸)” or "Honjozo(本醸造)".
These words are very important and basic information to know the tendency of SAKE taste, but almost all of SAKE write only in Chinese Character on Label following Japanese regulation.
Thus, at this moment, it is almost impossible to know sake for foreiner who can not read "Chinese Character" in Japanese.
Lecture with Tasting : The best way to know SAKE for "non-Japanese speaker"
However, if you visit us, all problem will be solved. Because we are always provide FREE Tasting at our store.
At SAKEOH酒逢, You can understand SAKE, not by the "words", but by the Taste. There is no need to read "Chinese Character" on label, you just compare each taste, feel the difference, and you can get to know "What type of SAKE you prefer".
After you find your favorite taste, we will explain "Why this sake's taste is like this", "The reason for the difference of the taste", "manufacturing process is what like" etc...
We believe that this is the best way to know about SAKE for "non-Japanese speaker".
Tasting Events : Feel and enjoy the change of seasons through SAKE
As you know, Japanese people value the four seasons, love the food in season. For example, at New Year's Holidays, we eat "OSECHI（おせち料理）", in cold season, we love to eat "hot pot cooking(鍋料理)". Then, SAKE also have seasonality following change of season and food.
