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!
The adventures of a Sake Sommelier
A little bit about me
I’m Giulia, but you can call me Jiji. Just a word about me, before we dive in.
I was born and raised in Turin, Italy. I studied Japanese language and moved to Tokyo in 2015. I’m passionate about Japanese food culture. Pursuing my love for sake, I became a certified Sake Sommelier. Hope I can share some drinks and Japanese delicacies with everyone!
