Off to Osaka to brew!

I hope everyone had a nice weekend.
Today, very shortly in fact, I am taking the Shinkansen to the Kansai area (Kyoto/Osaka) in order to participate in a week-long sake brewing internship at Mukune (aka Daimon-shuzo) brewery. This is the first year that the program has been offered and I will be part of the third wave of foreigners who have had the priviledge of attending this special course. The owner and head brewer, Daimon-san, along with Beau Timken (owner of True Sake in San Fran, CA) have selected people with various backgrounds, but all with an appreciation of sake, to come to the brewery and join Damon-san’s team to get hands on experience making nihonshu (日本酒).
There is a website where the interns have been posting about their experience ( and I will also be adding posts there as well as here throughout the week. I hope to take lots of photos as I just bought a new lens (50mm, f1.4) for my Pentax digital camera and am excited to use it!
Please check the blog daily as I plan to make posts every night.
