Japanese SAKE lesson & tasting at Izakaya pub

Japanese SAKE lesson & tasting at Izakaya pub

Do you like drinking? If you so, must try Japanese SAKE! It’s become popular in Asia, US, and Europe nowadays. However, SAKE has a lots of variety like wine or beer. In Japan, we have around 1,500 SAKE brewery and It is said that the number of brands will be over 20,000 types. If you’re not so familiar with SAKE, it will be difficult to find which one suits you. I've been working for a food magazine long time, so I have much information about food and drink. It's mean I can offer you much variety of that and advise you which SAKE suits your taste, what food suits for each type of it. Finally, you'll find your own special combination! Let’s enjoy my lesson at Izakaya pub with local vibrant atmosphere!

      Just do it !
      Fabulous! If you get Junko, you're in luck! She's fun & knowledgeable - the fact that she had to search for the occasional English word made the whole experience so much more real! The whole food experience was a taste delight ... we'd never have found such awesome treats on our own. So ... we went to 3 different fun, tiny restaurants that were down some AMAZING lanes. One restaurant for each course & had alcohol to match. Loved, loved, loved the Sake tasting paddle at the first stop. That you, Junko ... you made it so special :)

      Excellent evening out to pubs and/or bars
      This local pub & bar tour was excellent. Nice area about 20 minutes north of Shinjuku, Tokyo. The area was not crowded and everyone was very friendly. And my guide/host, Junko Kato, was very good with English and would describe each dish before ordering. And the icing on top was we ran into a group of older guys drinking at 2 of the bars we visited. And made sure to start up conversation with me. They could tell I was an American. They were very friendly and funny. Told me my guide has good taste in restaurants/bars. Overall, an excellent experience with reasonable prices for drinks and food. It was a wonderful evening out experiencing unique and great company, food, and drinks. Thank you Junko for an excellent tour/guide of local bars and/or pubs.
