Report on the August 2nd meeting of the SAKEWA Kansai Chapter 1📝. While wandering around Kew's Mall and other places, we decided to go to an izakaya (Japanese-style pub) run by Choryu, which Nemuchi-san found. There were 7 members: Rafa papa, kan, Nemuchi, Jive, bouken, Ofuji, and myself. On the way to the restaurant, Rafa said he had to go to the restroom and did not come back, so I decided to leave my luggage and go look for him 🚨. After about 30 minutes of searching, we finally met up✨. I heard that he had gone to the east ticket gate 🌀 But this sobered me up and reset me👍. The first sake we drank was Choryu's summer-only nama-zake. I've seen this label before, but this was my first time drinking it 🍶. It had a fruity aroma and sweetness, but it flowed so smoothly that I was thirsty and quickly ran out 💦💦. Everyone was already on their third glass 💧.

Yoohee, good evening 😃. I missed it 🤣I thought I would find it right away and come back, but it took quite a while 😅. That was a kickass event for the guardians 😁.

Good morning, bouken-san. ☀︎ Yes, I didn't know there were several ticket gates at Abenobashi, and I just thought I would see you at the west ticket gate 💦. Rafa got off at some station on his way home too 💧.

Yoohee, thank you for your help at that time 🙇‍♀️ I think I was going home because when I came out of the bathroom everyone was gone 😅 then I got a phone call... but I had no idea where I was 😭

Rafa, good morning ☀☀☀. I'm really glad you were able to find it as far as you did 💡. Be careful in places you are not too familiar with 👀.

Tomekawa Sake Shop Tasting (1) I went to a paid tasting by Tomegawa Sake Brewery, aka Kishiwada's crazy salad house. Last time I arrived a little early and was the first one to arrive, but this time I was late and it was almost an hour later and I was still the first one to arrive 🤣. This time, too, it was not a liquor store's choice, but a wholesaler's salesman's selection. Last time it was summer sake and this time it was hiyaoroshi. I felt like I came here to meet him rather than to see the sake lineup! I left the order of drinking to him. There were 6 different kinds of sake, and I tried all of them both cold and hot! The first was Choryu hiyaoroshi. It was beautiful chilled and didn't have much of a hiyaoroshi feel. When heated up, the sweetness and cleanness were pulled back, which was surprising.

The third drink of the second party. I thought it was almost over, so I had a beer to finish it off, but there were still people ordering drinks, so I went along with them. It was fruity and sweeter than the Junmai Daiginjo I had one time before. I don't know if that's right because I don't remember anymore. I think I asked everyone if the sake I brought to the offline meeting was good or not because I felt the response was not good. I'm sorry I seemed to have forced good taste on you 🙄. I went to the nearest station to the hotel where Mr. Jaive is staying after we separated from everyone, and Yoohee and I were looking for a place to go for the after-party, but there was no place we could go, so we gave up and went home 🚃. I thought that Yoohee-san was the strongest drinker this time. I was always late to the party so it was hard to judge, but this time I was convinced because he was there from the very first time 😁. It was a great success with a record 20 participants this time. Thank you to everyone who attended and to the organizer, Umaumai-san 🙇.

Hi Jive 😃. No, no 😄. It was like when someone asked for a drink, you got on the bandwagon 😁. Yoohee, I think it's great that you still write about the drinks you drank even after all this time and you remember the episodes back then 😳

Good evening, bouken. ⭐︎ I'm so sorry about the 3rd party - I wish I could have been there. I'm taking notes in secret so I can write about it in a later post 💦. No, no, no, no, I'm not even close.

Good evening, Mr. Yoohee 😃 I used to take notes in the beginning, but I started to neglect it because it was more fun to have a conversation 💦. You're right... there was Nemuchi, the strongest tank topper 🤣.

Second round of drinks. It has a mild aroma and is a food wine type, I guess. It has a beautiful flavor that makes it hard to believe that it has been aged for about 8 years. It is easy to drink, but the daiginjo-like taste is weak. I ordered a craft beer from Choryu afterwards, thinking it would be the last one, but the beer was the best 🤣.

While we were having a hard time finding a place for the after-party due to the restaurant being full or mysteriously closed, Nemuchi-san helped us find a place to eat and drink at the directly managed restaurant of Choryu Sake Brewery, Aji-Dokonaru Abeno. For some reason, Nara's sake breweries tend to open restaurants in Osaka 🤔. To the second party There were 7 of us: Rafa, kan, Nemuchi, Jive, Yoohee, Ofuji, and myself. But here's an incident 🚨. Rafa was missing, and although he replied to my LINE, he didn't seem to be able to get there, so Yoohee-san decided to pick him up 🙄. After a few minutes, Rafa was found and we all got together and started the after-party 🍻. Naturally, the sake menu was Choryu only. Shikisaki is a series of sake released seasonally. They used to only serve Ippon, but since the Corona disaster, they have started serving 4-Gou bottles as well. It was fruity, but I thought it was refreshing for an unfiltered unpasteurized sake. It was refreshing but juicy. Sweet like a peach. Is it designed for summer? Does Shikisaki have a peachy taste overall? The one I had in the past tasted like a peach, although it was different from this one.

Sake-no-wa Kansai Off-line meeting 2nd meeting (1) After the enthusiastic off-line meeting, Rafa, kan, Nemuchi, bouken, Yoohee, and Ofuji invited me to the second party, and we went to the Abeno area. We ended up at a Japanese-style bar "Ajidokoro Naru", which is owned and operated by Nara's Choryu Sake Brewery. Of course, we were served "Shikisaki Han-Natsuyu" by Choryu Shuzo! I was so drunk when I entered that I couldn't remember the details of the taste, but it brought back sweet and fresh memories 😊. The label on the back of the bottle says to eat something that will give you stamina, but in my hometown of Fukui, there is a custom of buying and eating a whole grilled mackerel on Han-Natsu-Satsu-Saba, and during Han-Natsu-Sabi, there are mackerel grill sites in the eaves of fish shops and supermarkets. I don't know if I told you about it or not, my memory is that vague😅. *This has been corrected due to a mistake.
