Meishu no Yutaka is a sake shop out of Sapporo, Japan.
We carry over 400 different kinds of Sake, Sho-chu, Awamori, and wine. I am setting up this blog in the hopes that those who are interested in Sake, may learn a bit about sake wile having fun, and most of all enjoying the sake they drink.

First snow of the season!!
The first snow of the year fell here in sapporo yesterday!
The temperature is now well below freezing (although they say it will warm up a bit by the weekend),
and it is starting to feel like the sake brewing season again!
The first snow came just about the same time as some very good news!!
I will be Joining Daishinshuu Shuzo for a week and learning how to make sake FIRST HAND!!!
Join me between Nov. 16th~23rd as I enter the world of the Jizake Sake makers.
True handmade sake; no koji machines, no fancy rice steaming conveyors, only sweat, blood, tears, and a lot of hard work!
I will also be heading over to Kozaemon (Nakashima shuzo) and Nishida shuzo (makers of Denshu, Utou, Kiyoizumi etc.) in February of next year for a week at a time.
I am looking forward to sharing my adventures and insights with you!
