Happy Sake Day!

JALT Sake BarOctober 1st gives you a good reason to sip sake. Yes, it is Nihonshu-no-hi aka Sake Day!

If you are wondering where to find a good place to kanpai, here are some events Tokyofoodcast’s friends are hosting.


Bonsai Bar, Ebisu
Our friend, Mame-chan, is hosting a special sake event on 10/1 at Bonsai Bar. Yes, it is the only bar you can admire beauty of perfectly manicured trees and enjoy sake picked by Mame-chan. 3,000 yen covers all sake for the evening and o-tsumami is at 500 yen per plate.

Akasaka NOTE, Akasaka
While back, Tokyo Sake Meetup hosted Japan vs. Holland Game with FIFA World Cup Official Sake event here. A nearby sake shop, Suzuki Mikawaya, and Goshima-san from Akasaka NOTE collaborated to put together two great sake parties in one evening. One goes from 6:30-8:30pm, then the second session starts at 9:00 pm. Purchase tickets in advance at Suzuki Mikawaya or contact the shop before you head out to the event. Ticket is 4,000 yen and it covers all nihonshu, food and live music.

New York
Now, if you cross the International Date Line and start with NYC, Hiroko and Rick are celebrating the day with special tasting at Sakaya NYC.

Rick says… “October 1st is Sake Day (Nihonshu no Hi) in Japan and we’ll be celebrating with our third annual party at SAKAYA on Friday evening, October 1 from 6-8PM. The festivities will feature “ample samples” of a selection of six of our favorite sake from World Sake Imports, embodying a set of distinctly different styles from across Japan.”

Malcom and Nadine at the Sake Shop will host an all day tasting at their shop featuring very special selections. Now, I wonder what Iki na Onna from Tedorigawa is like. Dry or sweet?
