Yamasaki, kyoto sightseeing
Yamasaki, kyoto sightseeing

In the oak wooden barrels is aging molt whiskey. The whiskey is Yamasaki(山崎), 12 years, 18 years and 25 years. I like to savor the 18 years one with excellent aroma.

Yamasaki is the place-name, on outskirts of Kyoto and is famous for its water. Yamasaki also has Taian, the only remaining teahouse built by Senno Rikyu, one of the great founders of the tea ceremony.

Hello too from Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
Did you see "lost in translation" I think there's a whisky called Santori in it. Is that a real brand?

To jazzy: Thanks. I love this whiskey.
To dutchie: Yes, Suntory is a real company, famous for its whiskey. I've seen "lost in translation", too. It still seems hard for foreigners to travel in Japan, doesn't it?

grant f: thanks for your comment. It is nice of you to enjoy Yamasaki. But I think Scotch has more better whiskey than Japan:-) Osaka is more powerful and interesting city than Tokyo and Kyoto, especially people. Food is also nice!
