In the Sake Night, over 400 different varieties of sake brands can be tasted at this special sake event.
An evening dedicated to a range of sake styles and sake flavors aims to serve a reminder that there is much to appreciate about the beverage. Hosted by Canadian Rakugo-ka (comic storyteller) Sunshine Katsura, “SAKE NIGHT 2018 from All Over Japan” will feature a sake tasting chance of over 400 different varieties (which have received recognition by the Japan Sake and Shochu Makers Association) from across all of Japan’s 47 prefectures. A complementary spread of food will be available for the Sake Banquet during the second half of the event. Guest speaker Seiichi Kondo, a former diplomat in the Permanent Delegation of Japan to UNESCO, will talk about the significance of Japanese cuisine and guests will be able to learn about the correct way for people to taste sake from the president of the National Research Institute of Brewing, Nami Goto. The sake event is by invitation only and limited to 200 attendees, so don’t miss out on a chance to be one of the lucky few by registering before noon on Friday June 8.
