Accessibility is key when it comes to learning about sake. You can read about it until you're blue in the face, but if you can't access it and sample various types, there's not much point.

Even good sake pubs can pose challenges. Good sake is never cheap, and those confounded kanji don't make the ordering process any easier. Wouldn't it be great to be able to drop in to a conveniently located shot-bar kind of place, and order up just a shot of good sake? In English?

Well, now you can, at Kuri.
