April 2010 Sake Tastings

April is sakura (cherry blossom) season.  In Japan, people enthusiastically engage in the festive ritual of ohanami,  viewing the cherry blossoms and gathering  under sakura trees to picnic.  Of course sake is an integral component of this annual celebration.  With ohanami as the theme this month, we’ve chosen sake for our tastings for their floral aromatics which evoke spring and the sakura.  We hope that you attend one of the  Sakura Matsuri in the New  York Metro Area and that you’ll find the right sake for your ohanami celebration at SAKAYA!
