Kiki-Zake-Kai: Tasting Japanese Rice Wine


Mariage of Sake and Food​

Sasuga Academy is throwing a Kikizake, the sake tasting event this summer. The purpose of this event is neither to make your stomach full with food nor to get drunk. This is not a Japanese crazy “ NOMI-KAI “. This will be an introduction for finding your favorite Sake and the combination of best matching food.

In the Event, we will taste 4 kinds of Japanese sake with different aroma and flavor, e.g. dry, sweet, fruity, rich, fresh etc. A tiny dish so called "otooshi" comes with each sake so that you can taste the sake and food combination- beautiful “ Mariage” of Japanese sake and food.

Let’s discover new sensation!
