Welcome to

have a nice sake


Who is Jijisake

My name is Giulia, but you can call me Jiji, and  I was born and raised in Italy. 


I moved to Japan in 2015 and this is when the sake journey started. My goal is to deep dive into the sake world and then share it with all sake lovers and sake curious.


In 2020 I founded Jijisake where I share my passion for sake hosting sake events and tasting.

I am a sake brewer collaborating with 2 breweries, and the SSA Sake Educator in Japan. I host an all-female sake podcast, I collaborate with other sake professionals in Japan and internationally, and this is just the beginning!
