July SakeSwap – Odayaka Tokubetsu Junmai


Cup of Odayaka

This week, I sent my favorite bottle, Odayaka Tokubetsu Junmai, to Brian, my July SakeSwap partner. I just love how Kinpou Shuzo, the maker of Odayaka and Shizenshu, is committed to making good sake while preserving local rice growing culture. They are doing it right: the environmental way.

Two years ago, I called Odayaka “Feel good sake“, and today it still gives me a warm and yasashii (gentle) feeling. To find out where I get that feeling, please visit our previous posts at Tokyofoodcast about our experiences learning all aspects of sake brewing from the field to the bottle at this brewery in Fukushima.
