Sake from AizuWakamatsu


The old piano teacher of my wife give us this nice sake from AizuWakamatsu, in the Fukushima Prefecture, made for a very old ryokan owned by her family in Aizu as well. The wooden laquered cup are from AizuWakamatsu, the town is famouse for the laquer tradition and for a big castle and samurai tradition too! It was very good, thank you! I shoot the photos at home in natural light with the 105 mm Micro Nikkor lens, fully opened at f 3
