We'll visit a liquor store in downtown Tokyo and will take part in the tradition of "Kaku-uchi" - sampling different types of sake at a liquor store while casually chatting and enjoying the lively local atmosphere. You won't get lost, as I'll provide you with the essential knowledge to increase your enjoyment. This experience is for you to enjoy "sake & culture" tasting.
