Katana, an amazing sushi/hibachi restaurant where the staff totally got what we were there for, and guided us through trying these four sakes, plus choosing the bottle we ultimately ordered. Forgive me, I only had my camera phone.
Sake, in English-speaking countries, refers to rice wine produced by brewing, rather than fermenting. Its taste can range from sweet fruity wine to something akin to a sweet vodka. I'm sorry to say I didn't get the names of the sake we tried, but I can say our favorite was the far right, which was actually cloudy from little bits of rice.
Our tour of the world will come to an end next with Spain, and then we have a busy fall planned with Oktoberfest adventures and — most exciting — a wedding!
