Shakariki 432 Sake Dining
Located at Desa Sri Hartamas, this Shakariki 432 Sake Dining is a sister outlet to Shakariki 432 in Publika . This izakaya dining offers a different atmosphere as compared to its sister’s place, coloured in black with chic classy interior, background music is rather soothing and I find the ventilation here is a lot better as compared to the sister outlet.
This is a piece of “out-of-the-cave” series, whereby my friend and I picked a place to get some fresh air after the past MCO. Atlas Gourmet Market A place that is filled with excitement (to me, at least)! Atlas Gourmet Market has been here for […]
A Journey of Aroma and Taste with Ikeda Town’s beauties：Sake from Daisekkei Sake Brewery and Fukugen Shuzo
I just “came back” from Japan, virtually; visited the Ikeda Town in Nagano Prefecture to be exact. It was a short ‘half day tour’ but it was a very fruitful one. Special thanks to Mr Danny Leong, the Master Sake Sommelier and also the owner of The Sake Place for this big arrangement. I got to view the beautiful scenery with my eyes, chatted with the very friendly Mayor, Mr Kiyoaki Motai, also learned and tasted the amazing sake from both Daisekkei Sake Brewery and Fukugen Shuzo. It was truly an amazing experience.
So now, would you like to learn about Ikeda Town and its beauties with me?
Ikeda Town 池田町
Ikeda Town is located in Azumino city of Nagano Prefecture, about 2 hours shinkansen ride from Tokyo. Ikeda is listed as one of the most beautiful villages in Japan. This place is blessed with the stunning scenery of the mountainous Northern Alps. Though I have not been to Ikeda Town, but I have seen the Northern Japan Alps myself from Toyama . I was in awe, truly amazed by its majestic beauty, so unreal!
