Story & Recommendation
A place to buy original Kyoto sake within a 15-minute walk from Nijo Castle
At Sasaki Shuzo Co., Ltd, located to the north of Nijo castle, Japanese sake that pairs perfectly with seasonal Kyoto cuisine is available for purchase. Some examples of this cuisine are a type of Edamame called murasaki-zukin, which is served in the fall, and Kujo leek, which is a winter specialty. The ability to draw out the flavors of these foods is what’s so appealing about this sake. Jurakudai (Junmai daiginjo), which is the symbol for this shop, is best drunk cold in the summer It’s a perfect match for the hamo dishes that summer in Kyoto just isn’t the same without. In the Muromachi Era (1336-1753), there were over 300 sake breweries within the city of Kyoto, but now just two of them remain. One of these is Sasaki Shuzo Co., Ltd., which is why it’s such a special shop. We hope you’ll stop by and pick up some high quality Kyoto sake to enjoy at your hotel before you turn in for the night.
