Taste the finest sake Tokyo has to offer

Sake is to Japanese cuisine as wine is to French food. Indeed, there are few better accompaniments to eating out in Japan than a bottle or two of fine sake. No matter your liquor preferences - dry, sparkling, sweet, fragrant - once you start exploring, the world of sake is endlessly fascinating. Just three simple ingredients - rice, water, and yeast - yields endless magical permutations of Japan's national liquor! Not only can you sample all kinds of regional sake at Tokyo's izakaya, the metropolis has its own sake-brewing scene that merits serious exploration.
