The name of this sake is called Seikai no Tokubetsu Honjozo Nama! I paid 1500 yen for a 500 ml bottle of this gem of a sake. This was the finest sake I had all year so far. Bitter and floral! I don’t recollect ever having a sake like this one. It came highly recommended by the hotel’s head chef and I loved it. Acidity was very low, extremely smooth, floral, but not sweet, lightly bitter after-taste and left a pleasant after taste in the mouth. I will order this one again, but from online.
Every chance I get when visiting a new onsen I try to drink the local water also. This one, like a mentioned in another post is Oze no oishi no mizu, which is named after a very famous marsh land in Japan.
I love water.
