【Kissing Mokkiri Sake Vol.032】


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. Rena Ishii, who is active as an Akita sightseeing ambassador, while working as a dietitian.

“When I drank sake for the first time, I was so surprised at its taste; however, I gradually came to understand the deliciousness of sake. I often drink Takashimizu sake hot.

Thank God for the chance to see this genuine “Mokkiri beauty”!
