I wanted to open the subject, at the occasion of a particularly good surprise with the Bordeaux Wine Harvest Festival at Akasaka Sacas. I went out of by curiosity with a friend, not expecting too much. But I stayed a good 3 hours ... Entrance fee was 2500yens, for a selection of 110 Bordeaux, and the nice surprise was the number of variety I was offered (=free) to taste. I ended up drinking more than 12 little glasses (a real glass was provided, not a paper/plastic cup).
In France, typically the first glass is free, but the free tasting-no limit sounds just not possible for France.
There were some stands with food : raclette, other French cheese for 500yens, .. I know by have passed by, there was some degustation in Roppongi of Japanese whiskey, so I wanted to open this topic on the subject.. Tokyo is too big, and the information on sake fair, whiskey fair, this incroyable Bordeaux fair is lost. Too bad, this is a good way to meet friends that join happily such events. Nice holiday candidates are not so easy to find with Xmas coming.. Thank you for sharing.
