What you'll do

In this tasting session, first, guests will come to our office which is in the beautiful old district area of Takayama. Our office is a 100-year old traditional town house which has been renovated into our activity space.

Second, you will be seated and the lecture will begin.
The lecture includes:
・What is Sake?
・How to drink?
・Sake & Japanese culture
・Sake & Japanese tradition
・How to make Sake
・Classification of sakes

Third, after learning about sake, you will taste 6 different kinds of sakes from this region, each of which is different each other.

Following the tasting, there is a special event, of course, "Blind Tasting!". You can demonstrate how much you learned in this session and have fun together.
There may be a prize for this blind tasting winner!

At last, I am going to summarize the session and review what you learned.

Host on Airbnb since 2018
  • Identity verified
After working in Tokyo for more than 7 years, I came back to my hometown 3 years ago. This is because I have been always passionate about my hometown, Takayama and its charms. And SAKE is definitely one of them!

In the past I have organized the first "Japan Day!" in the University of Cambridge in U.K., organizing a sake lecture and tasting event.

I have been giving lecture about Sake in Takayama for more than 500 people including small to large groups. A world famous travel agent "Contiki Tours" are sending groups to my lecture every year.

I am excited to welcome you all!!
