I visited a nearby temple at the end of last year so that everyone can enjoy sake in good health again this year.  I am currently a recipient of a special old-age pension, but I am in such a position that I will receive the old-age pension from this spring.  In the past few years, sake has been produced overseas and imported to Japan. But it is not called "sake" because it is not made in Japan using Japanese rice as the raw material! Let's dredge up our knowledge this year! ^_^ I'm going to re-read the books on sake once again...  The first sake to be opened this year was Kagamiyama Daiginjo! Fruity aroma like Daigin, silky, delicate, clear and sharp, it made me enjoy New Year ^_^!

This is my last post for this year. I have posted about 50 times on Sake-no-wa, but I have been into sake for about 40 years. In total, I have drunk more than 2,000 brands of sake and I am thankful that I have been able to do so without any health problems. The only things I have taken care of are drinking the same amount of water when drinking and visiting the dentist to check my periodontal disease and caries. I hope to keep my healthy life expectancy and enjoy sake in the future...ne!  This time we opened a bottle of sake from Ikoma, Nara. It was the first time in almost a year that I visited the brewery store and purchased this sake.  It had a clear acidity and a hint of citrus aroma. I could faintly feel the clear acidity and citrusy aroma. It is said to go well with Japanese food, so I paired it with a nabe (hot pot). It was delicious. By the way, "mountain" and "crane" are said to be the most common kanji used for sake.

Good morning, Jay & Nobby 😃As I look back on my purchase record, there are only a few Tochigi sake such as "Shikizakura", "Senkou", "Houou Mita" and "Ona". There are many other delicious sake. I will walk around next year so that I can meet them!

Recently, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) announced the "Guidelines for Healthy Drinking of Alcohol." According to the guidelines, the appropriate amount of sake to drink is about one cup of sake at 15 degrees alcohol by volume. In order to enjoy sake while taking care of your body Be sure to drink an equivalent amount of temperate water. I would like to make this a habit in order to enjoy sake in a healthy way.  The sake is clear, dry, and has a gorgeous aroma. You can also taste the umami of the rice. When heated, the flavor increases and lingers in the mouth. I thought again that it is better to enjoy junmai sake cold or warmed up ^_^.

This sake won the Regional Trophy🏆 in the Junmai Daiginjo category of the IWC2023 SAKE category. It is a delicious sake with soft acidity and a fresh taste. It is a high quality sake that is not considered to be a daiginjo, and is priced at less than 3,000 yen per bottle. It is a highly recommended bottle with a quality of sake that is hard to believe it is a daiginjo!

Mikotsuruひとごこち純米吟醸

This is the second bottle following the Suwa Miyamanishiki I posted earlier! This time, both Mikotsuru were purchased from the Co-op's home delivery service. The Co-op catalog used to carry mostly packaged sake from Nada and Fushimi, but recently the number of locally brewed sake has been increasing. I buy them occasionally because I think they are carefully handled, even though they are fire-brewed sake. Hitogokkyo" has a fruity aroma and a sharp taste on the first sip. It has a beautiful aftertaste and can be enjoyed over and over again. Four days after opening the bottle, it became even sweeter and easier to drink.

It's been almost a year since I started Sake no Wa. I have been using this app for a year now. I thought it was the ability to talk about sake, the national drink, at a sake party. I have been thinking about what I can do to make the sake boom more temporary and what I can do to make the sake boom more permanent. I am enjoying my sake life while thinking about what I can do to make sure the sake boom does not end temporarily... Mikotsuru is one of the breweries located in the Suwa area. The brewery is located near the Shimojya Shrine of Suwa-taisha, which is famous for the Omihashira Festival. The Miyamanishiki Jungin is an excellent, well-balanced, easy-drinking sake with a delicious taste. It has a gaseous and somewhat fresh taste. It is also a highly recommended item.

来福 豊穣祈願祭純米吟醸原酒生酒

Since ancient times, the city has nurtured a "culture of prayer and fruitfulness," expressing gratitude to nature for the blessings of the four seasons. The second of the four seasonal divisions, Risshun, is celebrated on February 17. On February 17, which falls on Risshun (the first day of spring in the four solar terms), prayer festivals are held at shrines across Japan to pray for a bountiful harvest, followed by the start of rice planting preparations on April 5, which falls on Seimei Day in the 24th solar term. In conjunction with this, they hold a fertility festival on April 5 to pray for a good harvest of rice. Sake breweries in each area brew their famous sake using locally grown rice. This sake had a gentle aroma and a refreshing taste. I enjoyed this sake as a food sake. It can be served with both Japanese and Chinese food. The sake rice is 55% polished Hitanishiki.

It is a limited edition sake brewed with a sake rice called Hananishiki. It is said to be the prefecture's first rice suitable for sake brewing, developed by the Kumamoto Prefectural Agricultural Center. It is said to be shorter than Yamada-Nishiki and less prone to collapse.  It is a very easy to drink sake with a mild taste.

I stopped by a sake store in Yawata City, Kyoto, which I have visited in the past and discovered it. It is a popular brand, so I bought it for the first time.  It is a sake brewed with flat polished rice. I learned that "Takachiyo" does not have a specific name or rice polishing ratio. Takachiyo" does.  My impression is that it is very juicy and sharp. It has a hint of pear.

It was a clear, dry sake with no harshness, as is typical of Kochi sake 🍶 and it was very spicy anyway. At first it was served cold. On the fourth day after opening the bottle, I enjoyed it warmed. The sweetness increased and became milder. The sweetness increased and became milder. After that, it became mild when drunk on the rocks with a tin tumbler. You can enjoy it in various ways with a bottle. Interesting 🤣.

I came across this brand at the Takashimaya Sake Festival. When I looked it up, I found that it was the brewery that makes Kunikiku amazake. You often see it in supermarkets and sake mass merchandisers. The brewery has been in business for 100 years in Asakura. They also make shochu and whiskey. The sake in the photo is a junmai ginjo-shu brewed with Yamadanishiki produced in Fukuoka. It has a slight sweetness and a mild flavor, It has a slight sweetness, mellow flavor, and finishes with a refreshing sharpness. It is best served with tempura and other light dishes.

 The Takashimaya Sake Festival was held for the first time in four years after Namba Corona was moved to the fifth category after the Corona disaster. It was a major event, bringing together 700 brands of sake from 100 breweries at the entire venue. The event also included a talk show and autograph session by Kazuhiko Ota. Since I attended on a weekday, I had plenty of time to spare, but I think it would have been even more crowded on weekends. I think it would have been more crowded on weekends.  The sake was junginshu brewed with Yumeginko. It was mellow and easy to drink. I did not feel much alcohol, and I could smell some woody aroma.

ccop's home delivery catalog includes a weekly selection of famous regional sake. So far we have had "Iori" from Okayama, "Drunken Whale" from Kochi, "Hakkaisan" from Niigata, etc. I wondered how {coop handles sake}. I was wondering how Coop handles sake, but it seems to be well packaged, so I buy it on rare occasions. The sake is a limited edition junmai ginjo that has been aged over the winter. It has a slight pineapple🍍 like fruity aroma. It has a clean finish and on the first day I tried it with smoked mackerel, and the mackerel's maturity (?) was lost on the taste. On the second day, I drank it with chestnut rice and salted rice. On the second day, it was good with chestnut rice and grilled chicken with salted lemon.

This is a sake that has received many reviews. It has been a long time since I last tasted it, but the taste of rice and the crispness of the acidity are just as good as they were in the past. This time, I paired it with horse sashimi. Looking back, Fukushima Prefecture is the second largest producer of horse sashimi after Kumamoto Prefecture. I tasted it with Kyushu's sweet and spicy gooey soy sauce sauce with chopped green onion and ginger. The sweetness of the lean meat of the horse sashimi matched well with the sauce, and the sake went down a treat. As a side note, I heard that in Aizu, they eat it with special spicy miso mixed with soy sauce. I would like to try it if I have a chance.

I found an unfamiliar face in the sake section at Takatsuki Hankyu and bought it. The sales floor is small, but it is interesting to take a peek at the rare brands they sometimes have in stock. When the bottle is opened, it smells like pears. The sweetness spreads in the mouth, and the acidity is very sharp and lingers in the mouth. It is easy to drink and highly recommended.

A junmai sake with a pronounced spiciness. It is a perfect match for the local dish of Kochi, bonito tataki! It is also delicious with simmered leatherfish. The sake has a clean and refreshing quality with no hint of a tangy taste. This sake also goes down very well!

Fruit aroma like melon🍈 after opening the bottle. The spiciness is initially felt, but eventually the sweetness spreads and the taste is well-balanced. When paired with pork cutlet, the oil is washed away and the palate is refreshed. The well-balanced flavor makes it a sake that everyone can enjoy.
