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!
