How to Enjoy Drinking Japanese Sake
The location is Ryogoku, Tokyo. Ryogoku is home to the Ryogoku Kokugikan Sumo Arena--a region regarded as a sumo holy land.

Who knew! There's a kakuuchi space where you can drink Japanese sake for 200 to 400 yen* per cup (50ml)!
* Junmaishu = 200 yen, Ginjoshu = 300 yen, Daiginjo = 400 yen
Plus the types are so surprising! Sake from Tokyo's entire sake storehouse is available for your enjoyment! Even if you live in Tokyo, this sort of opportunity never presents itself.
Sip some atop your favorite barrel!
Three varieties of otsumami and snacks are available for 300 yen.
Buy any of the sake that you liked! But start with a cup, first! Be sure to enjoy the fragrance and taste of Japanese sake.
