sawa x Kuheiji@Little Tokyo ★★★

sawa x Kuhieji Sake Night Event. Incredible. Presented by Shota-san from Fifth Taste with 5 different kinds of Kuheiji Sake, ranging from $100-$800. Finest & Purest Sake I have ever had. Woke up very refreshed and vitalized the next day. Tako was my favorite. Not as dry and a bit fruity. Omakase Sushi was amazing. Was able to request to order more sushi in the end. Special Event: $170 Omakase Course + $150 Kuheiji Sake Pairing.
