Making a Trail

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Mike and I did a sake tour around Kyoto today.

We stopped in at 3 different breweries and did some tasting and learned a ton about the sake brewing process.

These pictures are from outside the Meiji shrine where they have tons of sake barrels donated for Buddhist ceremonies. Kinda like the Manishevitz of Japan….

The sake places were cool, and after three or four glasses of the stuff, we were feeling it.

So you can imagine our confusion when we went to one of the museums about “the history of sake” only to see this weird creature encorporated into the narrative on the discovery of sake. (I’m assuming all of this, since the text was in Japanese)

If you have any idea how a fictional character such as the gelfling (ref: “The Dark Crystal”) was involved in the production/discovery of sake, please enlighten us.
