On Thursday 11 July Japan House London will host a free sake tasting session of Kubota Koju. The session is free to attend, and guests must be over 18 years old to participate in sake tastings. 

Kubota Koju, is from north western Niigata Prefecture, where a high annual snowfall produces clear, pure water ideal for making top quality sake. This junmai ginjo style sake is transparent and has refreshing acidity with a touch of toffee-like finish. Kubota Koju is available at The Shop at Japan House London.
