Hi! I'm Toshihiko Tsuboi.

I will guide you!

Description of this tour

・Sake is in the same category of fermented liquor as wine and beer. Fermented beverages are alcoholic drink made when yeast ferments alcohol from the agricultural crops used. That fermentation process differs for each type of drink, and a unique characteristic of sake is that it uses a sophisticated production method called "multiple parallel fermentation".
・There are many types of sake, which has different flavors, aromas and tastes, mainly depend on rice, water, rice koji, yeast and the brewing methods.
・One unique characteristic of sake is that it contains a lot of amino acids, which are responsible for "Umami". Sake is an excellent pairing for traditional Japanese dishes. Furthermore, the Umami present in sake makes it a great match for western dishes as well as other Asian cuisines.
・In this tour, we visit two sake breweries at Tama area in west of Tokyo. We leave either Tokyo or Shinjuku station in the morning. It takes about an hour and a half by train to reach the first brewery. We eat lunch at a local restaurant before visiting next sake brewery. At each sake brewery, we see the actual process how to make sake and enjoy sake tasting. We will be back in Tokyo until the evening.

・I had a big interest in other cultures since childhood. I liked to learn foreign languages and wanted to communicate with foreign people to expand my knowledge about other cultures.
・I had been engaged in overseas-related work in the computer industry quite long time. When I was thirty's I had a chance to live in San Francisco, America for four years. At there, I interact with people of various nationalities. At that time, I truly understood that "respect and trust" is very important to communicate with people who has a different culture and different opinions.
After I retired, I decided to become a tour guide, and I took the National certificate in February 2017. Since then, I have been in this tourism business a year and a half. I intend to communicate with tourist to let them know about Japan as a tour guide with hospitality mind.
