I did the sake tasting at Mirai Sake Bar in Shibuya, and it was really fun!

Wow! Thanks for sharing! I don't drink alcohol, so I am a bit hesitant to go, but I really want to try it just for the experience.

I like the fact that sake is drunk being hot - it's very different from other drinks! But I'm afraid I can't know the difference between sorts of sake. Probably, if to taste few, I'd feel the difference. :)

I love that it's a blind tasting!

Me too. What's also interesting is the Japanese onomatopoeia you will learn to describe the taste.
