I've found the best summer sake in the cosmopolitan world. It's low in alcohol, so it's easy to drink, melon top, good aftertaste, perfect freshness, and no miscellaneous taste. It is truly a summer sake.

This is the wrong brewery. It’s called kankeiku meijo. Very carbonated. So carbonated the top popped to the ceiling! 2024 vintage. Tastes sweet

One of the three tasting sakes for dinner. A refreshing sake, suitable for a mid-meal drink. Goes well with sashimi.

It has a steaming aroma, rice sourness, sweetness and richness. It is quite difficult to distinguish the Tamba set.

It has a light texture and goes in easily without much habit. It is like water, and I think it is a little unsatisfying. On my way back from a trip to Tanba in October, I stopped by the brewery in Sasayama. I was able to buy a Junmai Daiginjo for a little less than ¥2,600 because they were offering a ¥-300 discount on all purchases at the kuramoto ✨. The blue bottle with sparkling 🌙 on the label gives it a luxurious feel and makes you feel like you're drinking something expensive. Personally, I prefer the Tokujun, which has a more robust rice flavor 💡. 720 mL ¥ 2,300

Shizen Hometown Refreshing Refreshing, refreshing, and delicious. This may be the best sake I have ever tasted. Pleasant sweetness with a rummy feel. There is a slight alkalinity in the latter half, but it disappears nicely in the end. It is not flashy, but it has a moderate sweetness and calmness, and is easy to drink. It is easy to drink. I thought it was a sake I would like to keep on hand.

The last bottle in the store, a four-pack for 1,160 yen, was served at room temperature. It has a subtle aroma of banana, a hint of carbonation, and a slowly subdued sweetness with an excellent sharpness at the end.

I know - dry! But the sake-like quality is... less acidic? This is fine, less is more...! That's a nice change of pace!

Again this year, we went to the Cherry Blossom Festival in Hitachi. The cherry blossoms were only half in bloom, but the weather was mild and there were many visitors. I enjoyed cherry blossom viewing with Fukushin Sakura Ginjo as usual. Yesterday's TV program introduced Miyamanishiki Jungin Nama-zake from Fukushin. but this time of the year, Sakura Ginjo is the best! 50% Yamadanishiki polished rice Arabashiri is fresh and fruity! Gentle sweetness and mellow mouthfeel The bitterness that is typical of new sake finishes it off. Sip it while admiring the cherry blossoms! For the first time in five years, the "Hitachi Fuyuremono" float was also on display. I'm glad to see that the festival has finally returned to its full glory!

100% Hitanishiki Polishing ratio 55 Alcohol content: 17° to 18 Acidity 1.5 Sake meter degree +4 The aroma is subdued. It is slightly colored and spicy, with a strong alcohol taste coming out through the nose. Unlike regular Fukushin, this sake is specially ordered by a liquor store in the same city as the brewery, and this was the first time I had it ✨. I thought it might not be my favorite 😅 at first sip, but when I paired it with a salty or oily meal, it was very nice and sharp👍

When I went to a local izakaya, I was told that the label had peeled off and they couldn't make it into a product. I wondered what it would be like. It had a hint of orikomi and was a pretty decent sake! It was sweet!

One day, I had the desire to stay at a nice inn, so I took the plunge and stayed at a hotel called Toryukan in Yunoue Onsen, where I drank a bottle. It was a sparkling sake that was like Mio but not too sweet, and could be drunk with a meal. This was the first time in my life that I stayed at a detached inn, and it was a great decision.... Each room has its own indoor hot spring.... The dinner was stylish and delicious, and the breakfast was a triple set meal that was enough to fill my stomach to overflowing.... I hope to stay there again when I get my bonus. Incidentally, we also visited the Kunigon Sake Brewery to purchase some sake, which I will write about at a later date. I really liked the hotel. Mmmm...

At the 8th Sake Shop Kaku-uchi Fest (Ueno Park). The jacket was too cute to buy. Peru and Lulu seem to be the names of cats kept at the brewery. It has a clear fruity taste. It can be enjoyed on its own or as an in-between-dinner drink. I think it is better chilled than heated.

🍶 Nagano. I got a PC to use on a business trip, so I was working on Sunday (company animal). I brought it to Nagano anyway because it might recover from a blue screen🟦. I wanted to talk about how I brought it in the heavy rain and Sunday's mess, but I had a lot of time for meetings on Monday. I was so tired on this business trip that I didn't have the energy to explore new places, so I went to a standing bar that I went to last time. Yeah, I'm fine with standing if I can drink 😆. From Daishinshu, which I was curious about last time I was here. Very, very, very tasty. Almost chugged it down😅. I'm happy to drink Kame no Umi again 😃. Beyond the first two, the most delicious sake of the day was "Seki". It is a sake from Meikyojosui sake brewery and is almost impossible to find. The store here also took a year and a half to get it after they found out about it. it's made in 2019 and aged, but the taste is more subdued than aged (I'm not sure about the vocabulary, but they said the lightness of Jun Dai is grounded, to bring out the best of Kinmon Nishiki) and the rice has a great flavor, not sweet or sour, but just... Delicious! It's just delicious! I had to have another one 😋.

Just by the echoes of the Nebuta, there is also a please-sake, isn't there? I asked him to do so, but he ignored all my requests. So I drank the Momokawa nebuta in loneliness. I don't know what it tasted like, but I deserved it. I'm too drunk 🫣. Well, I don't know about myself, but I seem to be at a level where I can't keep up with both Tokyo and Kansai 😱. He was the only one who saw everything.

Cold water. It goes in smoothly and goes out thinly. It is easy to drink with a sense of coolness that is different from freshness.
