ABOUT THE TOUR
Food and sake education by the certified sake sommelier/Japanese cuisine advisor, Chika Ohata from Iwate, Japan. Chika will be happy to answer any questions; from culinary ingredients to fermentation. On this fun and educational tour, guests will not only taste food and sake at a few of the most popular restaurants in Japantown, but also go home with more knowledge of them. We’ll be tasting different styles of sake from home brew-style doburoku to sweet kijoshu. If you’re a beginner or sake enthusiast you’ll equally have a blast.
