Sake, or Nihon-shu, is the most representative alcohol beverage in Japan. Sake may be available at your place, but I'm afraid that some of them are different from real sake, or you have taken sake only at a sushi restaurant. I offer this online introduction to the Sake World with a private lesson via Zoom meeting system for you to get basic understanding of sake before your tour to Japan (I hope it will be soon).
