hiking and soaking, we roared back along the central train line to Mitaka. First time for me to visit, and quite possibly the last - it's a long way from home, and there are so many great things in between. We were headed to a place not at all in between, and in fact close to a 10-minute taxi ride from the station.
Did you notice the address in the header? It's not really in Mitaka, it's in 'Fushimi', which is the same name as Kyoto's sake brewing area. Coincidence? I think so.
The Tomonori at top right was my highlight of the day, and the master's first recommendation. The aged Nami no Oto below that was too aged for me. On the left, Kawanakashima is one of Japan's oldest brewers but still turning them out, and far left Abekan was also excellent. But hey, everything here was excellent, and cheap, and available in sets. Ca-CAO!
Finding places this good is substantially harder. Getting there even worse.
The blog's easy to find though.
