Good starting point for Sake

The instructor is very knowledgeable and friendly. The course took 1.5hr from basic knowledge to sake tasting with and without food. Amazing experience.

We originally booked the 1.5 hour tour but it was cancelled due to a sake festival that was happening that day. As a result the tour operator Kotaro offered us the upgraded 3 hour tour instead the same day just a little earlier. This was such a better option as you learn so much about sake and the different types/taste. You start off with a brewery tour and learning the processes. Afterwards you are given a set of sake to taste and then pair with food. Was a ton of fun!
