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 knows how to keep the attention of a crowd. My Team from work and I had a wonderful time and we feel so much closer to each other because of this experience. Ryuta knew all the right cues to pause the conversation when it made sense for the group or when our colleagues’ children appeared on screen. We all felt comfortable and had a hoot! Would do again for different friends circles and totally recommend for a work setting!

Ryuta, or Wasabi, was a lot of fun! I booked this as a corporate event, but would still be good as an individual experience. He was very informative in a storytelling manner so it was easy to follow and wasn't information overload. At the end he stayed on to answer our questions which I really appreciated. Support Ryuta and sign up for his experience!!

It is not at all easy to talk about sake in a simple manner, but Wasabi is the person who can do it. Highly recommended.

Had a team event with Ryuta and we had a blast. He walked us through the distinction of sake types and some history of the brewery he work at. We now feel more confident when it comes to tasting sake, thanks Ryuta!

We thoroughly enjoyed this experience. Wasabi was organized, engaging and super informative. I’ve done sake tastings before and never really understood the varieties. His explanations and visual aids were so helpful. We had a ton of fun and learned a lot!
