Japan in Oakland: UmamiMart, Whisky, and Ice
December 14, 2012
In the December issue of Oakland Magazine, I have a short piece about Japanese drinking culture in Oakland.
The story is centered on UmamiMart, the online and brick-and-mortar shop selling Japanese bar (and kitchen) tools.
I also mention big ice (of course) at places like Prizefighter, and Japanese whisky like Yamazaki, Hibiki, and Hakushu at the traditional Ippuku and at Acme bar.
The magazine is available for reading in one of those online reader formats. The link is here and the story is on page 21-22.
If you like Japanese whisky and bars, here are some other blog posts I wrote about my trip to Japan last year.
