Sake Tasting Night

Hello! My name is Jason Davidson. I was born and raised in Minneapolis, a city in the Midwest of the United States. I have spent the last 10 years living and working in Kyoto, Japan. Actually, I live in an area called Fushimi, which is located in the southern part of Kyoto. It is famous for Japanese Sake! I was introduced to sake about 5 years ago when I participated in a sake brewery visit. I have been enjoying it ever since. It is a great way to discover Japanese culture. Oh, it also tastes delicious! Kampai!

Keihoku, The Village of Fireflies

Fireflies can be only seen on sunny days in the rainy season (mid-June to mid-July). Most places in Japan have hardly found fireflies dues to the recent pollution of rivers, unfortunately. Yet in Keihoku, where you see beautiful mountains and water stream everywhere, you can meet hundreds of fireflies every year. Please come and visit Keihoku, it's just one hour north up from the center-Kyoto! You can book the tour by mail.
