mokkiri vol.5-1

When drinking at Izakaya (informal Japanese style bar) in Japan, sometimes sake is served in this style: server put a glass inside the Masu or sake saucer and pour until sake overflows from the glass.
This serving style is called “Mokkiri” and it is said that the degree of overflowing shows the degree of the server’s generosity.

How would you drink this style of sake?

The most familiar style in sake country Akita is that sipping a bit of sake with kissing the brim. In order to spread this “kissing drinking style” throughout the world, we will continuously introduce the attractive “Mokkiri face” of beautiful Akita’s ladies to you.

This Mokkiri beauty is Ms. Fuka Kitagawa, who is active as an Akita sightseeing ambassador!

Since she commutes the university in Tokyo, she spends really busy days between Akita and Tokyo.
“I always bring Takahshimizu sake for souvenir when I go to Tokyo. Akita’s sake is popular in Tokyo and Takashimizu is the most well known brand there. Personally, I really look forward to seasonal sake and I am always interested in the taste of each season’s sake every year”.

Such a nice comments as a representative of Akita tourism!
