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.

Ryuta is a sake master! We learned so much and had a really fun time. We can’t wait to travel to Japan and visit the sake brewery in person. Thank you for such a great time and for all the knowledge you taught us!

My Partner and I did the Sake Secrets experience from Australia and it was awesome! We had so much fun and learnt so much. Ryuta (AKA Wasabi) was so friendly and knowledgeable. He really engaged us in the experience by asking questions and personalising explanations. I’d really recommend it, and really hope we can visit the brewery in person one day! ありがとうございました!

Informational and engaging! Wasabi is funny and knowledgeable. We felt his hospitality through the screen and was warmly welcomed to visit him in Tokyo whenever we can.
