Koji’s sake class was an amazing experience and a great way to learn about sake. His bar is welcoming and Koji was really encouraging to us when we had no knowledge of sake. We even stayed after chatting and tasting even more sake.

We highly recommend this experience for anyone who wants to learn a bit more about sake, including its history, production methods and the variety of types available. Alternatively, if you just like to drink sake, then we would still recommend it as Koji's sake menu was one of the best we encountered in Japan! Koji was also able to direct us to where we would be able to buy our favourite bottles and we used what we learned during the experience when we ordered sake during the rest of our trip.

Abstbrilliant, friendly host who is clearly a sake expert, but gives just the right info to be interesting but not overwhelming. I am a sake novice but I have been inspired to seek out and learn more about sake in the future.

If you are interested in sake and learning about it this is definitely a must. You receive 6 good size pours, small snack, and information to take with you. I learned so much and was recommended a few additional spots I will try. It’s only n hour long but we stayed after and tasted more sake. Definitely a good price.

So fun & educational! I work in the wine industry but never work with sake— this class filled in all the blanks and Koji was able to answer all the nerdy questions I had. And was a great value— totally worth the $.
