Awamori Sake

This post is a little late as I have had these photos for a couple weeks now, but I am finally getting time to upload them for your viewing. I attended a sake event with work that we put together last month.

From Wikipedia:
Awamori (泡盛) (泡盛, literally “bubble top”) is an alcoholic beverage indigenous to and unique to Okinawa, Japan. It is made from rice, but not a direct product of brewing, like sake, but of distillation, like Shōchū.

Bubble Top – that is awesome!

Here are my photos of some Japanese Awamori Sake:

Various types, shapes and sizes of the bottles. I am mainly interested in the lables and choice of colors in the bottles.  The two close-up photos are ones in particular that I enjoyed. 
This is not a complete list, but you can imagine the various types of sake. How many types of wine exist in France?  Probably less than the types of Sake in Japan.  Get the picture?  

Which is your favorite?

Today I had Tempura Soba for lunch and Sushi for dinner.  Lunch was paid for by Shirai at work and then I paid 1900yen for 9 plates of sushi.  Each plate had 2 pieces on it. I ate some 315yen ground tuna on rice that was just devine.  I had sushi in the middle of Kabukicho.
