The Yu-Ai Kai Senior Community Center hosted this benefit. A sake tasting and walk through Japantown with local businesses offering different types of sake for guests to sample. Some of the sakes for tasting were daiginjo, ginjo and junmai grades of premium sake. It provided a great opportunity for connoisseurs and novices to sample and learn about a variety of sakes. Proceeds from Sake San Jose benefit Yu-Ai Kai Senior Services nonprofit center located right here in Japantown.
To kick off the event our very own Horitaka was invited, alongside other local business owners, to break open the first cask with a mallot:
Yay boss! and I think Phillip consumed at least thirty shots of sake in all, making it to twenty-three of the twenty-eight booths! Good times!
