A fishing town in the Tohoku region, Shiogama serves as a major fishing harbor in Japan with superior access to some of the largest tuna catches. Specializing in fresh maguro (tuna), there are many high-end seafood restaurants in the city serving delicious, freshly-cut sushi, making this coastal city in Miyagi Prefeture a local and delicious foodie heaven! The town also has a long culture of sake brewing, namely with 3 major sake breweries that are linked to the sacred Shiogama Shrine in the center of the city. Join this Shiogama Sake Tasting with Sushi Pairing to learn about locally-made sake and how to appreciate and differentiate its finer qualities, and enjoy it with a delicious, fresh sushi lunch. This Shiogama Sake Tasting with Sushi Pairing starts off with a walking tour, exploring the ancient grounds of Shiogama Shrine overlooking the city. Learn about the history of this Shinto shrine (established over 1200 years ago) and the city of Shiogama with the knowledge of a local guide. Next, you’ll listen to an in-depth lecture on sake appreciation in English, learning about the history and culture of local sake, including its deep connection to the local shrine (40 minutes). Once you’ve become a sake expert, then you’ll head to a local sake brewery for some sake tasting and souvenir shopping for some delicious sake.
