    What to Expect
    Sake is one of the first things that come to mind when people think about Japan. This rice-based alcoholic beverage has long been part of Japanese culture. It is drunk at many occasions, including religious ceremonies and traditional weddings. It is also quite popular as a social beverage when people go out with their friends.

    Sake is made by fermenting rice in large vats and distilling it into a clear, alcoholic beverage, and there are small, local breweries all over Japan. As with beer microbreweries in the West, the local people of towns where sake breweries exist are very proud of their local products.

    When you’re in Osaka, you really must take part in a sake tasting event in order to fully complete your visit to the nation’s food capital. You will learn sample of Japan’s most well-known sake brands.
