Visiting Megumi Yamazaki

My next stop this autumn in Japan is a small town in Niigata called Kamo. I met Megumi Yamazaki on twitter, and she introduced herself as someone who runs a sake shop in Japan.

I was excited to see how sake is sold outside the big city so I took a day and made a detour to Kamo! And boy am I glad I did. Yamazaki-san welcomed me graciously and quickly gave me a tour of her nice shop. She introduced me to several local brands and told me that the bestseller in her shop was a local futsushu sold by the ishobin. We also discussed the current crop of delicious hiyaoroshi style sakes that were in stock now – again, almost all from the local area!

After the shop tour, Megumi took me to meet a local sake producer! more on that soon…

Oh by the way, Megumi is super plugged in! You can find her promoting sake all over the web:
