        Thanks for the Shinshu recommendation, Jan.
        This afternoon I was drinking 喜平 Kihei from Niigata (hot = 熱燗 atsukan) and it was wonderful, with overtones of apples.

        This sake was very fruity and fresh. Surprisingly sweet. I will def rank it top 3 all-time.
        Perfect to enjoy as is, or like we did yesterday, with fish and seafood.

      Not exactly prosaic, but hits the spot and soothes both the aching muscles and shattered ego everytime..........

        Haha, yes, I have seen these being bought and glugged on the platform by thirsty peeps waiting for a train.

        And, as in the video, it is virtually impossible to open them without spilling a small amount as the ring pull cap comes off.....an intentional offering to the Kami????

        Some of these drunk 'salaryman' (pl) smell of sake, so it could be the bit they've spilled on themselves. Surprised the guy(gal?) in the video clip didn't burn the old fingers though. Why use tongs then? I guess it wasn't hot enough, or they desperately needed a drink.
