The Shonai Region of Northern Japan is blessed with some of the purest water in all of Japan thanks to its heavy snowfall and towering mountains. This in turn has allowed it to produce many of the highest grades of rice and many of the finest sake brands in all of Japan. I am connected with a famous sake bar right by Tsuruoka Station that specializes in sake from the Shonai Region. They have given me permission to run a special sake tasting session where we will be able to sample 5 different types of sake with strikingly different tastes and aroma. Join me for an evening of trying some of the best sake in Japan. This sake is a fraction of the cost if you drink it here where it is produced and you will never find as wide of a selection of Shonai sake as you can here in Tsuruoka. Many of the sake available here are limited sake that you cannot find in other bars or restaurants. The bartender has also prepared special "otoshi" or small dishes of local food that are specifically made to pair with the sake you will sample. You are also free to order more at the bar after the tasting! I would also be happy to give you recommendations for other places to visit during your visit here!
I am the co-founder of The Hidden Japan, a promotional company here in Yamagata that is dedicated to putting the countryside charm of the Tohoku Region on the map for international tourists visiting Japan. I have lived in Tokyo but was ultimately drawn to Northern Japan for the pristine nature, warmhearted communities, and truly genuine people here who have helped me make a life here in Sakata City. My mission is to share all that I have discovered and come to love here in Tohoku with visitors to this wonderful and yet undiscovered region. Note that this tour is co-led by Saori Yamashina, another guide in this region.
