Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Fuji Takasago Brewery-Homare Fuji Rice Junmai Nama Genshu

 Fuji Takasago Brewery-Homare Fuji Rice Junmai Nama Genshu: Fuji Takasago Brewery in Fujinomiya City, in spite of the strong earthquake in March is actively producing all kinds of sake (and shochu) brews!

 

They are also one of the 19 (out of 28) Shizuoka Breweries experimenting with Shizuoka-grown Homare Fuji Sake Rice (“sakamai”)!
This particular brew is a nama genshu junmai, meaning it is the very original product with no addition or alteration!

 

This time I had the perfect snack to enjoy the tasting!

 

Shizuoka-grown crispy small cucumbers with wasabizuke/wasabi stems and leaves pickled in sake white lees/sake kasu!
