True People – Meet Our Newest True Sake Team Member
Yay! We are very excited to introduce our newest True Sake Team Member Ms. Saki Kimura. Saki has a name fit for the sake world, and she is very well versed in all things rice and water. As is custom, we will let Saki introduce herself in her own words. So from all of us at True Sake we say “Welcome Saki”!
My name is Saki, which often confuses my co-workers and customers at True Sake. My name means “blooming” in Japanese. I have been working as a sake journalist since I was in Japan - writing articles for web media, producing books and features for magazines. Recently, I have established a new medium “SakeTips!”, which could be a kind of “online salon” where people share their own sake stories. You can find my report about SF’s first sake brewery Sequoia Sake, and gain sake tips from conversation-style columns SAKE 101.Two years ago, I came to California to study journalism and explore the status of sake in US. It is super exciting for me to talk with you all at our store - listening how you feel about sake and telling what I know. I’ll do my best to help my favorite drink in this country with blooming its flower! *Follow my Instagram: HERE!
