I have welcomed two men from UK for sake tasting class in Tokyo.
It was their first time to taste sake and I was very exciting to introduce to their first sake.
I have met many Japan visitors from the world in my cooking class who haven't tasted Japanese sake during their stay. I would highly recommend to taste sake for those people to know how sake is wonderful local drink which is great to drink with food and also drink itself.
As you may enjoy drinking and experiencing French wine with French food in France, Drinking sake in Japan with Japanese food is great way to more understand about Japanese food culture and enjoy Japanese food.
The class is not only learning sake products and those tastes, but also how the food influence on sake taste in your mouth also vice versa.
Today's participants gave their expressions about the taste of sake very well, and expressed how does the sake taste and texture influenced on the taste of food.
This session is kind of experiment. I give some clue to match 4 different kinds and taste of sake and 5 kinds of food samples, but the participants can try any combination what they want to. There is no correct answer. We enjoy to exchange of opinions of the taste and deepen the understanding of sake.
I'm always glad to hear the participants enjoyed the pairings and eventually like Japanese sake and willing to try sake during the stay.
Hope you enjoy sake in rest of your stay in Tokyo and Japan!
Thank you for coming Japanese sake tasting and food pairing class in Tokyo!
Since I've been giving cooking class for 2 and half year, this is the first time to welcomed people from Slovenia. I was so curious the food culture in Slovenia.
Slovenia is mall country next to Italy, and there are abundant vegetables and seafood in the area. Even though there are many kinds of fresh seafood, they don't eat them uncooked, always prepared and served the dishes. So they enjoy Japanese food very much while they stayed in Japan.
These are food samples to taste with Japanese sake. The food are common Japanese food, such as tuna sushi rolls and miso, and you can buy them in most of the grocery stores. I realized people in my sake class love those simple tastes especially fresh tofu with some condiments. I'm always so glad to hear the guests find something new taste in my class.
Some foods are the first taste for the ladies today and eventually loved them. I'm happy to share my favorite food with them!
Thank you for coming sake tasting class at Kitasando cooking studio in Tokyo.
They had traveled through Japan for weeks then came back to Tokyo. The day they came was the last day of their stay in Tokyo, Japan. I appreciate you booked such a precious last day of their travel!
I'd love to share Japanese food culture before leave.
They are very polite and listened my lecture carefully. There are 4 types of sake and can be tasted with instruction.
The picture is the time we did the tasting of each types of sake.
After the process of tasting each sake, we enjoy talking about food culture differences.
Now I knew the most common alcohol among young people is fruits cider. Sound yummy!
Hope you fine something new to Japanese Sake, and enjoy more sake in Sweden!
Thank you for coming!
I have welcomed French young guys for sake tasting class this afternoon.
Although they said they are Sake beginners, finally they knew the taste differences and enjoy each flavor of sake labels. They all have a great sense of the tastes.
I'm so glad more people understand sake as Japanese food culture and become interested in sake.

I also give you idea how to pairing sake and food. The food are simple, but commonly served with sake. People today enjoy common and traditional food as well.
