Fun Link Friday: In Search of Sake

The Guardian recently released a short three-video series called In Search of Sake, in which Londoner Henrietta Lovell, owner of the Rare Tea Company and nihonshu enthusiast, takes a tour of three famous nihonshu-producing cities–Kyoto, Kanazawa, and Miyagi–with nihonshu-expert Rie Yoshitake.

The editing and video quality on these videos are gorgeous, and the interviews with the owners and workers at the breweries (sakagura, 酒蔵) provide interesting insights into not just the brewing process but also the sights, sounds, and local flavor of these three cities.

Part 1: Kyoto
Part 2: Kanazawa
Part 3: Miyagi

Kanpai!
