I landed in Tokyo yesterday afternoon after an eleven hour journey. Fortunately, flying internationally has far more perks than domestic air travel.
What brings me to the other side of the Pacific? The wonderful people at Suntory have arranged, among many other things, for me to visit their distilleries in both Yamazaki and Hakushu. Wonderful news for a whiskey enthusiast like myself.
Later today, I will be taking the bullet train to Yamazaki for the first portion of the tour. Stay tuned-- the juicy stuff is yet to come!
