日本酒は米 =rice 米と水で作られています。








日本酒に使われるお米は、表面 = surface が 削られて、(削られる = to be shaved) 、削れば削るほど、(the more you shave it)米は白くなります。


ワインと日本酒を比べてみましょう。Let’s compare. 比べてみましょう。




日本酒は、作られてからだいたい1年以内(〜以内 = within)に飲んだ方がいいです。




日本酒の説明はちょっと難しいですから、日本酒についてもっと知りたい!勉強したい!という人は、amazon prime か Netflixで、「birth of sake」というドキュメンタリーを見てね。おすすめですよ。

January 19, 2021 (Tuesday) Today’s weather in Kyoto is snowy and sometimes cloudy. The temperature is now twice. It’s four times at noon, so I think it’s much colder today. The time I woke up today is 7:00! You can’t get up too early. I really want to get up around 6:30, but it’s difficult. I have to go to bed sooner.

Thank you to those who made requests on Instagram! If you would like to request a topic on Asa Radio, check out my Instagram story. If you want to see the Asa Radio script, check out my homepage. There are Japanese and English scripts. Thank you for Youtube.


Today’s topic is sake.

Sake is a famous Japanese sake in the world. It’s called “sake” in English. Alcohol content is about 15-16%, which is a little higher than wine.

Sake is made from rice = rice rice and water. 20% of sake is rice and 80% is water. In other words, it is very important to use clean and delicious water when making sake.

Warm sake is popular in winter and cold sake in summer. Both are delicious, but I prefer cold sake because it’s fresher and easier to drink.

Sake is used not only for drinking, but also for cooking. Japanese food often contains sake.

There are various types of sake. Depending on how you make it, the type of water, the type of rice, etc., you can make completely different types of sake. Ginjo, Daiginjo, Junmai, Junmai Ginjo, Junmai Daiginjo, Honjo, and many more. The name is different depending on how you make it. The surface of the rice used in sake is scraped (to be shaved), and the more you scrape it, the whiter the rice becomes. Ginjo is made by cutting about 40% of rice, but Daiginjo is made by cutting 50%, so it is more difficult to make.

Let’s compare wine and sake. Let ’s compare. Let ’s compare. Older wines are more popular, aren’t they? Wines 10 years ago are more expensive than wines 2 years ago, 5 years ago, and 5 years ago. Occasionally, there are wines that are 20 or 30 years old. I think that heavy, spicy (= dry), dry wines are more valuable than fresh wines.

But sake is the opposite. Sake should be drunk within about a year (within ~) after it is made. Fresh, clear flavors that are not so strong are popular. This is because strong-tasting sake is difficult to match with Japanese cuisine. There are some types of sake that can be stored for 5 to 10 years, but there aren’t many in ordinary restaurants.

It’s a little difficult to explain sake, so I want to know more about sake! I want to study! For those of you, check out the documentary “birth of sake” on amazon prime or his Netflix. I recommend it. I’ll put a link on today’s script page.

By the way, before I became a Japanese language teacher, I worked for a wine company, so I also have a sommelier qualification.

Well then, have a nice day today. See you!
