Highlights

Enjoy the difference in colour, aroma and flavour of ‘Koshu’ – vintage sake! Local sake specialty store ‘Okei-Chaya’ in Kesennuma City boasts Japan’s largest collection of Koshu. Due to variation in temperature and length of maturation, the flavour of an aged sake is completely different to ‘new’ fresh sake varieties. Let the charismatic owner of ‘Okei-Chaya’ help you find your favourite selection from the incredible array of choices. After sharing several glasses and much fun local chat, you are sure to discover your number one choice of vintage sake!
