Japanese Sake Glass Seminar - Taste the Difference a Glass Can Make

There are wine glasses, so why wouldn't there be Japanese Sake glasses? With this question in mind, Kimoto Glassware pursued the creation of the 'es' glass.


As Japanese Sake has begun to bathe in the worldwide spotlight, various types of sake, each with its own personality, are constantly being born. Likewise, glasses suited to taste the flavors of each sake type have garnered attention. This is a seminar to learn first-hand how to enjoy various types of sake using a variety of sake glasses with Kimoto Glassware President Seiichi Kimoto.

Workshop Outline


1. The origin of “es”
2. Explanation of the difference in sake glass designs
3. Sake tasting (5 different types)
