I love 天恩(tenon) and 天領(tenryou).
one of the best thus far:)

If one's going to Hida Takayama, one needs about one week or more to try all the local sakes in that area.
In fact, if you look up sake on Wikipedia, Hirata Sake Brewery (Hida Takayama) is posted as well below the picture of Itsukushima Shirine (Miyajima Island).

Check it out man! Cheers

Thank you very much for your comment, Bashi-san:)

You must be long for Sake in Takayama:)
