Hi, My name is Akiyuki Sonoda and the organizer of "Sake Exploration of Kansai." I'm a certified Kikizakeshi (sake sommelier) w/actual working experience in a Sake brewery in Kyoto, and have a lot of experience working in oversea restaurants (including 10 years in New York City).
This group is organized for discovering the beauty of sake. Since this group is based in Osaka, we will mainly taste and discuss the sake from the Kansai region. We plan and organize sake classes, sake tasting, food-and-sake-pairing meet-ups at local izakaya, and sake brewery tours in the Kansai region as well.
