Nihonshu Sansan Downtown Sake Festival
May 29 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This sake festival organised by Yagenbori liquor store Yamatoya is one of our favorite events of the year.
It is far more compact than the annual sake festival in Saijo, and the 30 or so boutique brewers bring nothing less than their top varieties, it is an excellent opportunity to try 100 or so of the best sakes in the country, poured by the people who take such care in making it. There is a really relaxed atmosphere, especially after everyone has sampled a few brews. Giveaways, food and music too.
