Jiji sake

Welcome to Jijisake everyone! I am Jiji, a Sake Sommelier from Italy, currently living in Tokyo. I'm here to share my passion for Japan with you. Jijisake is a place where we can talk about sake and food. This is a journey of passion and inspiration.

I prepared for you a sake tasting that will make you feel confident about sake. And I carefully selected authentic Japanese pottery & kimono items to complete your crave for Japan.

Join me and let’s get started!
