In this tasting session, you will try 6 different kinds of sake, paired with edible companions. We will discuss what you need to know about sake and how sake flavors change depending on the brand and how it is served, delving into the nuances of Japanese food culture. By the end of this experience, you are not gonna want to take a sake bomb... hopefully.
I’m a certified sake sommelier and a new wave sake bar owner in Tokyo. I also founded Ninja Food Tours, a gourmet food tour company featured by multiple media (e.g. CNN). While I have a deep appreciation of traditional sake culture, I also love to experiment new things with sake. That is what I do with my professional sommelier team on a daily basis. My team (Giulia and Nathan) and I will share a deep world of sake in my sake bar.
Japanese snacks We will taste four or more snacks sourced from local vendors.
Sake We’ll try 6 different types of sake.
My team (Nathan and Giulia) or I will meet you at my sake bar in Nishi-Shinjuku. You can easily go to Shibuya or Shinjuku after the sake tasting class and I will give you tips to explore Tokyo.
Let me know if you have any food allergies or restrictions in advance. The snacks will be light, so please have something small to eat beforehand.
