This is the must-do-tour in your life if you are interested in Japanese sake and culture. I am Japanese. And always I wonder about Japanese sake cuz I’ve never met anyone who knows well about Japanese sake. But this time I did met the right expert in Kyoto. You can learn about Japanese Sake very well how you should combine the sake with food, which was like magic happening in your mouth and how they make. I do recommend you to take this tour. I don’t think I could have had a sake tasting tour as well as this is in Tokyo. You gotta take this. Besides the Japanese man who will be your tour guy can speak English well. The way of his explaining about Japanese sake was really easy to understand. Please take this tour!!!

I recommend this tour for those that skeptical about sake. Our guide, Kotaro, was a great host and he was very professional and knowledgeable. We had a great evening and food pairing session that help us understand how to enjoy the different types of this traditional beverage.

I booked this tour during their slow season and the beginning stages of Covid-19 so I ended up being the only person on the tour. It was fantastic! My guide Kotaro Hashimoto was very kind and informative, I learned so much from him. He gave me a handy 'cheat sheet' to take with me for the rest of my time in Japan so help me buy Sake. He also took the time to send me his ppt on everything I learned from class. He taught me about 'mouth mixing' and opened my eyes to the hard work Sake takes, 10/10 would recommend!

Awesome tour! I'm not a sake drinker (always thought I hate it), but I couldn't leave Japan without tasting some of it, obviously and I'm so glad I joined this tour. Kotaro was so informative and the tasting was amazing. He showed us that sake is so complex and there is one for everyone's tasting. If you're in Kyoto, please don't hesitate to join this tour.
