Day trip to Awaji island

Take a JR train from Osaka to Akashi, where the "Uonotana" fish market is, we enjoyed tasting samples, watching fresh fish and shopping for dried fish.
Then take a fast commuter ferry to Awaji island. It was seriously fast.

Tasting Sake at Sennenichi sake distillery.
You can actually see the process of making sake between Dec-Mar.

Huge traditional barrels are the same ones used for making soy source.
It is a pity that realistically no one can make these barrels now.
Went home with the top ranked sake "Daiginjo".
It is beautiful!
