In recent years, the quality of sake enjoyed in Japan and overseas has reached new levels, as brewers combine tradition and technology in new and exciting ways. The Joy of Sake celebrates the wonderful variety of delicious sake being made today.

First held in Honolulu in 2001, The Joy of Sake is the largest sake-tasting event held outside Japan. It showcases over 400 entries submitted to the 2016 U.S. National Sake Appraisal, presenting them alongside sake appetizers prepared by specialty restaurants.

The event is held in the penthouse “Tokubetsu Hall” of the TOC Building, a 10-minute walk from Gotanda Station. This attractive venue features plush carpeting, ambient lighting and excellent acoustics for the performance of live Hawaiian music (and hula) at this once-a-year Tokyo event.

Tickets will be available on-line and through the PIA, E-Plus, CN Play Guide and 7ticket ticket purchase sites from August 1, 2016.


Sake complements a wide variety of appetizers and entrees. The restaurants below distinguish themselves not only by their outstanding cuisine, but also by their appreciation of the luster that fine sakes can add to a meal.
