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!

You have to be old enough to drink legally to join this 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.

The virtual sake tasting experience with Wasabi was great! He was very knowledgeable and answered all my questions thoroughly. His guidance on pairing sake with non-Japanese foods was particularly eye-opening and his friendliness and humor were infectious. Highly recommend!

Ryuta aka Wasabi was a great host. He's informative, warm, funny and genuinely passionate about sake. We were celebrating a friend's birthday and he went out of his way to personalize the experience. It was great to do this experience with friends which made us all feel much closer together. The list of sakes was great too.

Ryuta (a.k.a. Wasabi) was playful, as well as knowledgeable. He was also extremely flexible and generous with his time, answering all of our group's questions. I would absolutely recommend this experience to sake connoisseurs and novices alike. You are bound to discover something new or develop a newfound appreciation for this age-old (and surprisingly versatile!), Japanese beverage. What are you waiting for? Give it a try! Your palates will thank you.
