Japanese Cheese Tasting with Lectures by Mari

October 02, 2021 / by Junko


“Japanese cheese? Can they make the same cheese as in Europe?⁠”⁠
You may think like that.

Mari showed us the world of Japanese cheese like never before!
Over the years the quality of Japanese cheeses has slowly but significantly improved, and the artisanal & small-crafted cheeses are attracting attention among people in the Japanese cheese industry and cheese lovers.
They have even won numerous awards in Europe over the past 15 years!

We tasted almost 20 of the Japanese cheeses from Hokkaido to Okinawa. Some are very unique and we enjoyed the marriage of the cheese with Japanese wine and sake very much😋
