Review:

"Toyko-based journalist Bunting talks of sake and shochu, beverages long associated with Japan. He also takes a substantial and welcomed look at the popularity of beer, whisky and wine in modern Japanese culture, providing context and suggestions on where to find the best, citing hours and atmosphere. For what many might consider the dream assignment, Bunting 'spent a wonderful year up and down the country meeting hundreds of brewers, distillers and bar owners...' He learned of technique and business philosophy. He tasted and took note of regional preferences. Bunting sheds significant light on some of the smaller, more local names as opposed to the widely recognized national brands such as Asahi, Kirin, Sapporo and Suntory. He gives the country's growing craft beer industry its due, presenting insight and information a useful supplement to a variety of travelers, whatever their thirst. Photos and maps. (Apr.)"
