Sake of the week #035: Tatsuriki Junmai Daiginjo Nihon no Sakura

No wonder Tatsuriki never lets me down…

Tokyofoodcast’s San’in Trip: Day One

The day I returned from visiting Chiyomusubi in Sakaiminato in January, we opened a bottle of Tamagawa Tetsukezu Genshu from Kinoshita Shuzo. This was bottled directly from the giant accordion of a pressing machine, or Yabuta. It was so bubbly and lively. I happened to also bring back some Matsuba Kani from Tottori that day. The sake itself was great, but with the crab, that was just soooo good. That’s when I pulled out a map of Japan to see where Kumihama, Kyoto is.

Thus, my first casual thoughts boiled and bubbled over the next few weeks to finally emerge as a plan for a grand tour around San’in in March.

Match made in heaven:Tatsuriki-Lebanese food?

I love Tatsuriki. I love Lebanese food. So, if two are put together, what would happen? When I heard about a charity event hosted by Sakaya Kurihara on November 4th to pair Tatsuriki with Lebanese food catered by Lebanon Cafe, the first word that came to mind was “How?”. Then I thought of sesame, lemon, [...]

Tatsuriki: Sake of Dragon’s Might

Tatsuriki In December, I was at a sake tasting featuring Tatsuriki. What a delightful event it was! Nine kinds of wonderful sake from Tatsuriki is one thing, but Mr. Honda’s passion for the soil and the right kind of rice to make the best sake instantly turned me into a Tatsuriki fan. Tatsuriki (Dragon’s Might) [...]
