Yoshikawa opened a sake shop and corner counter in a location typical of Kyoto, known as an eel bed. The products are not limited to sake, but also include wine and shochu. In the cellar, the Classical wine is next to the Naturals, with a mix of reds and whites on display. Neutral is our concept. We want people to enjoy the time when they buy something because they like the etiquettes," he says.

The rules of the Kaku-uchi counter are also quite unique. For 2,000 yen in cash, you buy 10 karuta tickets and pay for the sake you want to drink and the food you want to eat. You can sample the sake with two tickets and three tickets for today's sashimi... and so on, while staring at the cards in your hand.

You serve yourself sake, put it on the counter, and our staff will pour it for you. We serve food that can be recreated at home, and we'll even give you recipes. I would be happy to be of help to you in your home-drinking," says Yoshikawa.

Three karuta cards are picked up each day, and anyone who has the same object as the karuta card will receive one karuta card.

The beauty of kaku-uchi is that people can learn about the existence of minor sake breweries. The beauty of kaku-uchi is that people can learn about the existence of minor sake breweries and enjoy their sake in a casual setting. We would like to introduce sake that is not yet well known in the Kansai region as a storyteller who delivers the voice of the producer. By providing the real voice of the sake producers, the number of sake lovers should increase in this town.
