    Sake Tasting

    Sake Tasting Our guide Tomomi and the sake venue were awesome! If you're looking for a unique experience - this is it. Tomomi met us at the train station and led us to a local hangout spot away from tourist zones. In the venue, we had a great view of the streets and learned more than we ever knew to ask about when it comes to sake. I highly recommend taking on this adventure. Ask for Tomomi if you can 😀.

    Sake Tasting Interesting experience, good chat with Tomomi. Tried 6 types of sake that we never tried before, taste-opening experience.

    Sake Tasting

    Sake Tasting The host, Tomomi, was a pleasure to interact with and meeting us at the station to walk us to the cutest sake bar was such a nice touch. The sake server/owner of the bar was very knowledgeable. And best of all, the sake was delicious! So many kinds and varieties! Would recommend it to anyone.

    Kobe: Explore the Sake Breweries

    Kobe: Explore the Sake Breweries I found Yoshimi on goVoyagin after looking around for a sake tour for kobe that was for a smaller group (myself and my partner) and a little more personalized.
    I contacted Yoshini on availability and she got back to me very quickly with a timeslot and once booked, ran me through a few options for the tours breweries and lunch.
    The tour itself was fantastic. We met Yoshimi on the day at Uozaki station, took a short walk to Kikumasamune brewery. There we learnt about the end to end processes of making sake ( waaay more complicated than I'd thought), saw a mini Museum of the tools used during the sake process, and then a sake tasting of the different types of sake we'd learnt about.
    Onto the second part of the tour, we took another quick walk to Sakabayashi restaurant for lunch. At Sakabayashi we had an excellent 3 course traditional Japanese meal, the matcha coated mochi for desert was delicious.
    Next we walked next door to the Fukuju brewery to browse the gift shop and some more quick sake tasting, while waiting for the special tasting event to start.
    Now the special tasting was the main event for the afternoon, it's a biannual event the brewery runs to let the public try the full range of new sakes before anyone else - including the top of the range award winning varieties.
    It turned out the events pretty popular, around 70 other people had turned up.
    In the breweries main hall they'd setup 6 tasting tables for their new sakes, once the owner had introduced himself, he took us through each sake - what type it was and what we should expect. He asked us to assess the colour, the smell and the taste to compare the sake.
    The tasting itself, once we started, was very fun, the people at the event were very friendly, each of the sake's were fantastic - with the 2 dryer ones been my personal favourites. Once everyone had tried each of the sakes, people broke off to mingle or reconfirm their favourite sake.
    Afterwards we took another browse of the gift shop for some presents for family and friends, before Yoshimi walked us back to Mimage station.

    Overall the tour was great. Yoshimi was a fantastic guide, very friendly, very organised, excellent english, and kept to schedule. The highlight was the special tasting which was an awesome coincidence it lined up for our tour.
    I would happily recommended Yoshimi as a guide.
