About this Japan blogger

“A Louisiana born Chinese -American, I currently live in Tokyo, where I struggle daily with the Japanese language and keep myself busy with learning as much as possible about sake and wine. I’m a graduate of the John Gauntner Sake Professional Course and a WSET Wine Certificate holder with no fear of being called a nerd. It’s happened too many times; I’m inured. Although I’m a tad overly fond of fine dining in restaurants, I also love cooking and do it as often as I can.”

About the author of this Japan blog

“In 2005, I sampled premium sake for the first time at a Japanese Restaurant in New York City, and I couldn’t believe what I was tasting. The complex, nuanced and delicious flavors simply amazed me. I was hooked and immediately began researching how water and rice come together to make “Nihonshu”, known in the U.S. simply as “sake”. In October 2007, I was invited to Kyoto by the Japan Sake Brewer’s Association Jr. Council to be named a “Sake Samurai” for my efforts in promoting sake outside Japan. This was a tremendous honor and a life changing event for me. As part of the tenets of becoming a Sake Samurai, I vowed to “Spread the word about Japanese sake around the world with pride and passion“. In that spirit, I have become a sake educator, writer and speaker, doing my best to share my passion, respect and enthusiasm for sake with the world.”
