Feb 3, 2011 : Warm Sake Night at Sakagura!!!

2011/01/26

Sakagura and Kuramoto US, Inc Present

Nurukan no Kai – Warm Sake Night

On Thursday,  February 3rd, Sakagura and Kuramoto US, Inc

(http://www.kuramotous.com) will play proud host to TEN of the most distinguished breweries from Japan.

We cordially welcome you to the first sake event of this year at Sakagura!

Nuru-kan: It means a WARM sake ! Not a HOT sake. There are several terms that are used in reference to warming sake. Heated sake in general is known as O-kan, or Kanzake. Nurukan refers to gently warmed sake, whereas Atsukan is piping-hot sake. Atsukan is for the most part too hot to taste anything, so Nurukan is what we want to be drinking.

There is plenty of premium sake that is absolutely wonderful warm. In fact, many brewers make sake with flavor profiles specifically suited to warming. These ten sakes that have been carefully selected for this event. In addition, luscious finger foods will be featured for paring warm sakes.

Also, February 3rd is Setsubun no Hi in Japan.  Let’s shout “Oni wa soto! Fuku wauchi!” (“Devils out, happiness in”) to drive away disease-bringing evils together!

We hope you will join us in tasting the best Nurukan to make you warm!

みなさんこんにちわ。
2011年も明けました。今年はいいことがたくさんあるよう願いたいものです。(ちなみに私はうさぎ)
最近日本では連日FB(フェイスブック)について特集しています。
FBが主たるSNSでない地帯は日中韓、ロシアだそうで今後重点的に攻勢がかけられるようです。日本人は受け入れるのかな〜。どうするミクシィ!?現在FBは世界で5億8500万人が利用、日本最大級のSNSミクシィの利用者は2000万人ほどだそうです。SNSの利用者はどんどん増えてますが、人と対話がどんどん減っていくような気がします。せめてノミニケーションが減らないよう願いたいものです。酒は昔からコミュニケーションの最大のツールなのですから。
今年もよろしくお願いします。
