Kimono Chirstmas Party

On December 23, a kimono-wearing party called "Kimono DE Christmas" was held in Chez Daigo Yaesu, a restaurant near JR Tokyo Station.

Around 50 people attended this buffet-style party. Almost all the attendees were wearing kimono because of the dress code of this event.

My acquaintance Shino Hagio, a jazz singer sang some songs for us accompanied by the guitar by Osamu Jimba.

Please play back the video to listen to their music and see how the party was.

Incidentally, we cracked a sake cask open and drank sake from the cask. This sake was futsu-shu (regular sake), but, having absorbed the scent of the cask that was made of Japanese cedar wood, the sake tasted quite fresh and good.

Today's Sake
Kasen Funeshibori Muroka Nama Genshu Honjozo (Tamura Shuzoujo)
This sake is brewed in a sake brewery in Fussa City, Tokyo. This sale-by-subscription sake is quite rare, and I had to ordered it in advance.
The first sip was impressive and I soon discerned the characteristic taste of a sake by this brewery quite impressively and felt this was the taste of Kasen. Elegant and meaningful.
Seimaibuai: 60%
Alcohol: 19 - 20%
