What you'll do
On this Online Sake experience, we will learn how to drink sake like pro. First, we kanpai, Japanese cheers, with sake if you have some. If not, make sure you have some kind of drink in your hand when we start. Then I will introduce you to the origins of sake (hint, hint, it involves drunk shamanism). I'll share how sake is made and the differences between wine and sake. Finally we'll learn how to drink sake like a pro with a Q&A. By the time you're done, you'll know so much about sake that Japanese people you meet will be totally amazed. Also when it's safe again, please come to visit me in Japan with the below experience! https://www.airbnb.jp/experiences/656116?s=67&sharer_id=209676819&unique_share_id=4ebfb070-4698-4c64-918e-29b9671c2d6c You have to be old enough to drink legally to join this experience.

Hello! My name is Ryuta, but you can call me Wasabi! I am a self-claimed sake sommelier and fanatic who has been partnering with the oldest and biggest sake brewery in Tokyo. I have been doing tours and sake tasting with this 300 year old brewery for more than 5 years. I was taught by the one and only master sake maker and also the 23rd generation owner of this great sake brewery. I am extremely passionate about telling everyone about the wonderful and crazy world of sake. I will be able to tell you not only the tradition and history of sake but also how to find a sake you will love.
