What you'll do

Welcome to the Best rated Drink Online Experience in Airbnb!!!
On this Online Sake experience, we will learn how to drink SAKE like pro.

If you would like to have a private session for special occasions (Birthday, family get together, or company events, I do quite bit of company events haha) please let me know! I can arrange something special!

First, we kanpai, Japanese cheers, with sake!!

I usually recommend to have Junmai DaiGinjo, Junmai Ginjo, and/or Junmai sake, so please try to have them ready for the experience!
If you have all three of those kinds, then we can really get our sake tasting on!

Here is basic recommendation which seems like a lot of people has access to!

Dassai 45 for Junmai DaiGinjo
Wondering Port for Junmai Ginjo
Hakkaisan Tokubetsu Junmai for Junmai

If you want to go above and beyond, then please try to have Sparkling Sake, Cloudy Sake as well :)

If you do not have an access to sake, you could join with the alcohol of your choice!

Then we start with just a sneak peak of 300 years old Sake brewery that I work in. Along that, I'll be explaining the general information of Sake as well as the different types.

After we have good knowledge of Sake, we'll learn how to drink sake like a pro by touching into Sake tasting and proper Sake etiquette in Japan.
By the time you're done, you'll know so much about sake that Japanese people you meet will be totally amazed.

Also when it's safe again, please come to visit me in Japan with the below experience!

Hello! My name is Ryuta, but you can call me Wasabi!

I am a self-claimed sake sommelier and fanatic who has been partnering with the oldest and biggest sake brewery in Tokyo.
I have been doing tours and sake tasting with this 300 year old brewery for more than 5 years. I was taught by the one and only master sake maker and also the 23rd generation owner of this great sake brewery. I am extremely passionate about telling everyone about the wonderful and crazy world of sake.

I will be able to tell you not only the tradition and history of sake but also how to find a sake you will love.

Fantastic online experience not only for sake tasting, but Ryuta goes beyond the topic and expands towards Sake history, Sake drinking etiquette and some fun stories about sake that even many Japanese people would have missed during daily life. Ryuta-san is very friendly and you will not feel for a second that this is an "online" experience compare to other wine tasting if you have done any before. Ryuta-san has tremendous knowledge about sake so bring up your questions as much as possible, and it comes to the end that you will be like "oh no wonder !" I feel like Ryuta-san knows sake better than pretty much anyone else - but at the same time he is very easy to talk to and makes you feel welcomed like an old friend. Strongly recommended.

We had such a great time! We knew almost nothing about sake going into this but now we’re so excited to try more sakes both at home and in Japan. Wasabi was so friendly and informative. It was a really nice way to have fun with friends during the pandemic.

This was a super fun experience! We were already sake fans but we’re definitely going to drink it more often now. Ryuta is very funny and even though it was just two of us and him, it wasn’t awkward at all. I definitely recommend this experience!

We had a blast learning about the history of sake as well as the brewing process and various styles. I'll definitely be able to use what I learned the next time I'm navigating a sake menu at a restaurant.
