Where is Japanese Sake From?

Where is Japanese sake from?

Although there are some sake breweries in America and Europe, let's be traditionalist and focus for now on the sake from Japan. There are a few prefectures especially famous for sake production such as Niigata, Hyogo, and Hiroshima. But in fact, all prefectures in Japan except Kagoshima produce sake (even tropical Okinawa). There used to be a distinct type of flavor per region, but in recent years production has become more and more diverse and now it has become difficult to pin down a distinct flavor per region. Rather, sake drinkers choose depending on individual brewer or for instance, pureness.

My wife and I scheduled a day with Michi and had a customized tour that met our expectations perfectly. We were pretty worn out by the time we got to this part of our trip and she adjusted the schedule to fit our less than energetic pace. She was extremely prepared and informative and spoke excellent english. She was easy to talk to and a pleasure to be around. Highly reccommend her.

Michiru gave us a wonderful tour of Miyajima island and the Peace Park. Her knowledge and ability to convey it made for an unforgettable day. And a huge bonus is that she has been trained to speak on behalf of the atomic bomb survivors and gave us a private 45 minute talk on behalf of one of the survivors. It was a moving and thought provoking end to an amazing day. I highly recommend!!!
