The Japan Society’s annual sake tasting event was held on May 10th this year with the usual format, but this year, we went “back to basics” with a lecture led by Mr. John Gaunter. John gave a wonderful overview of the core concepts of sake. The final take away was just drink and enjoy! It’s good advice not to get so caught up in nihonshudo and kasubuai that you miss the main point – sake is enjoyable!
