A story about Kenshin Himura, a master swordsman who survived the turbulence of the last days of the Tokugawa shogunate and his circle of companions. Seijyuro Hiko, Kenshin’s master, leaves a quote about sake; “In the spring, we have cherry blossoms at night. In the summer, we have a starry sky. In the autumn, we have a full moon. In the winter, we have snow. They make sake delicious enough. If you still feel your sake is not good, that is because there is something amiss with you, yourself (not the sake).” This quote may be the ultimate truth of drinking.
