Sakagura LDN once again held an excellent sake and food pairing seminar on Tuesday evening, where this time, they introduced “Gekkeikan Sake Seminar”, a sake that has been experiencing a tremendous growth in popularity.

 
The evening involved pairing world class Gekkeikan Sake with some of Sakagura’s delicious dishes made by their Head Chef, Yackshin Jin. A fantastic, educative night with Kohei Hoshino representing Gekkeikan Sake brewery and Natsuki Romano-Kikuya, founder of Museum of Sake.
