If you are an alcoholic, I am sure you want to try some Japanese sake.
Prime Minister Abe has been trying to gain recognition of Japanese sake, and it is finally starting to get popular worldwide.
Breweries of Dassai are actually in Yamaguchi prefecture where is very far from Tokyo and Dassai Bar 23 opened in 2013 as an antenna shop.
It is located in a very convenient area. I am sure many can get there without getting lost.
It is a very small, calm shop with the best hospitality.
If you ask the bartender about the liquor… they will bring out rice samples and give detailed descriptions about the liquors.
Again, if you love drinking, you should definitely try Kikizake Set. It’s a tasting set!
I am sure you will notice the slight differences. It’s very delicious!
You can enjoy the sake even better with the stylish appetizers. But remember, it’s a taboo to stay too long.
If you finish tasting the Kikizake Set, and finished talking to the bartender, you should move to the counter seats.
If the table seats are vacant, select 1 or 2 additional liquors. There’s a wide selection of food as well - from sushi to refined washoku,
There are sweets too!
A little digression: If the shop was too crowded and you couldn't stay long, or if you don’t feel like you had enough, and you want more Japanese sake, I recommend you to go to Hasegawa Saketen in the premises of Tokyo Station. There’s a bar but you can also enjoy shopping as well.
