  • WHERE TO DRINK IN TOKYO

    René Redzepi's done a pop-up, vending machine meals are a thing and the dollar is relatively strong—all in the Land of the Rising Sun. What more do you need to convince you to take a trip to Tokyo?

  • NOTES ON SAKE

    We learned a few new things about sake at Shukuu Izakaya.

  • DASSAI SAKE POP-UP

    Renowned Dassai Sake has a pop-up bar in Singapore for just six months. Here are reasons we think it's really important to convince them to stay for much longer.

  • ALL ABOUT SAKE

    You might not be a sake expert, but at least you know it's rice wine, right? Not exactly. It turns out that calling sake "rice wine" really misses the mark.

  • SAKE SAMURAI

    It's not every day you get to meet a Sake Samurai x Sake Sommelier, a double threat (or treat, rather). We spoke to Mariko Kiyonaga on World Sake Day (Oct 1) about her mission to spread the joy of sake appreciation to the world.

  • KAKURE CLASS

    Kakure is a small sake bar with a big sake selection. And the best past, a sake sommelier (yes, it's a thing) as well. Makoto Iwabuchi is around to help you make the best choice, and as he proved, he's badass at pairing with food too.

  • GOODNESS SAKE

    We promise we will only use this header once. Yes, it's a story about sake, one of the best, in fact – Tengumai. We spoke to sake master Kazunari Shata.
