Test sake in Arashiyama

Test sake in Arashiyama

BY Danie Satrio, executive summary by darmansjah

I headed west from downtown Kyoto. To travel about 30 minutes, I arrived at the
Arashiyama - Sagano. Located at the foot of the mountains. Arashiyama bamboo forest popular will, rivers, mountains, dozens of temples, as well as the architecture of the village with a value authentic maintained for hundreds of years. I just wanted to remind, do not take a trip to this place during the summer. The weather is really to grip.

According to records, travelers can enjoy the natural beauty of
Arashiyama with various modes of transport. If you want to enjoy the panoramic view of the river can choose the boat. Meanwhile, any road there are two options: bus or train. I decided to choose the path of water and land. As soon as I was riding the bus stop in Kameoka station, I boarded a boat from the river towards the bridge Hozugawa Togetsukyo, which became the main meeting point of tourists in Arashiyama.


The view along the river have indulged my sense of sight for about two hours. Although not fluent in English, the crew kept telling me about the history of some point on the river side which is considered sacred by the locals. Not afraid of hunger or thirst during the journey, because there are some floating stalls that provide snacks and cold drinks.

Arriving at the end, I chose the bicycle laneways continue my search to the region. I'm spending 1000 yen of the pocket so that I may wind up the area by train. After clearing rental business, I soon observed that alley between buildings hundreds of years old.

I decided
to stop in front of one of the buildings. This is one of the oldest sake brewery in Arashiyama. Established since 1717, branded Heart Land sake brewery that also serves well as a restaurant-cum-club jazz. That's because Ashimori-san, the master brewer who is also a direct descendant of the founder of Heart Land, is a jazz maniac.

"Indonesia? I got this ..., "said the long-haired man with a sober English, while showing CD" Simak Dialog "-one of Indonesia's top jazz band-collection. "I love their music. They are genius? "
 
Ashimori
then asked me to try out Japan's homemade wine.

"You can see, the older the age of sake, the darker the color close to the color of whiskey," he said while pouring wine from a variety of age-making into a glass and invited me to try one by one while eating confectionary.

There are
five glasses should I try. The older age of sake, I feel the 'kick' stronger alcohol. "Be careful with this one," he said, pointing Ashimori-san dark glass of sake about 20 years old. Maybe he saw my face began to redden.

Sure enough, just a small sip, my stomach started to react and this head was spinning fast. Well, I give up! I was forced to admit defeat in the experts. He just laughed understand. From this I learned that the bike anyway, summer, and test sake, not a right blend.

To neutralize the great influence of sake in the body and head, I decided to try out the Romantic Train. This is a series of old railway pacing along the banks of the River Hozu. The road is more or less similar to a boat trip I've lived before. Only the scenery just a little change. Point of view. Hehmm ... may be the influence of sake Heart Lane is still too strong.
