Fascinating insight into sake with a very knowledgeable teacher
Jan 2020
My wife and I visited as part of our visit to Osaka and we were treated to a lesson with Koji. The bar is small but very cosy and Koji was very welcoming and incredibly knowledgeable about sake and Japanese brewing. The lesson is very interesting and has lots of elements to keep you interested. It lasted for one hour and involved several very different types of sake with detailed information about all of them. Koji was very happy to answer many questions about not only sake but aspects of Japanese culture and his English was impeccable.

An awesome tour!

Koji, the host, is indeed friendly and most informative on Sake. Sit, relax and enjoy the amazing selection of sake that Koji provides. Take in the ambiance of the Hana Sake Bar, and even make a new friend or two. If you're looking for more activities to fill your Osaka itinerary, this is a must do.

My first Sake learning
Nov 2019
This is my first Sake class, and I have learned a lot, like how to pair with foods. If you know nothing about Sake and want to start. This is a good basic 101 class, consider this reasonable price.

Best experience in Osaka!
Nov 2019
First of all, I would like to thank Koji for his hospitality and flexibility!! He was extremely responsive and worked with my schedule so my family and I could experience his wonderful class! We all really loved it! He is extremely knowledgable and passionate, which made this a really great experience! The Sakes we tasted were delicious and he did a great job explaining the differences between them and all the elements of Sake. Thank you so much! I cannot wait to visit again!

Sake School with Sake Quiz
Nov 2019 • Couples
I am not a drinker but sake school was one of my must do’s in Osaka.

Having visited Osaka last year (devoting our stay to tourist sites) this second visit, I wanted to try more of Japanese Culture.

Our host was very thorough with his discussion of Sake - especially its history and general information.

Aside from explanations on each type
of sake that we drank, he showed us videos how sake was made.

At the end of the class, we were given a quiz - i scored 7/10 ... shows i was not listening in some portions as i was busy taking pictures for souvenir.

I requested for a refresher class so i can make up
for low grades and have more Sake.

KAMPAI!!!

Koji really knows his sake and you can tell he's very passionate about it. We had a great time learning all about the history of sake and all the different variables that can affect its taste. Koji worked at a sake brewery in the past so he had a lot of great insight into the whole process.

Excellent sake course!

The course was small and intimate, and Master Koji was really friendly. We came away knowing 500% more about sake than we knew before. Highly recommended!
