    I was searching for a way to discover more about sake, how it was made, the different tastes and how to do proper food pairing, and this tour actually answered all my questions. Our guides Kotaro and Asahi was really nice and answered all the question our group had.

    We really enjoyed the Insider Sake Experience. The tour guides were excellent. The story behind Sake was fascinating. The pairing with food and the understanding of how to identify the various Sake options was also excellent. Would highly recommend this tour if you are in Kyoto.
