Yomi Junmai Ginjo is wonderful, locally-made, dry, and crisp sake from Sake One in Hillsboro, OR. With a nice balance of light and bright fruit notes (like melon, lychee) along with light and mineral structure, these cans are highly crushable (and highly portable). I seriously love and appreciate so much how good sake is made right here just outside Portland. Thanks Sake One!
Yomi is the Japanese name for the Underworld: the mythic concept of the land of the dead and darkness and decay, coming from Shinto lore. For my fellow mythology nerds, there's a solid overlap with the Greek underworld of Hades here. Furthering the overlap is an awesome story of a a failed rescue attempt from the land of the dead. The Japanese myth bears similarity to the tragic Greek tale of Orpheus and Eurydice to degrees that I’d wager the two stories share the same ancient Laurasian source:
In the Japanese creation story, the co-creator god Izanagi tried to rescue his lover, Izanami, from the Underworld after she died giving birth to the god of fire. But when he saw his decaying lover in the Yomi, he was so horrified that he ran back to the land of the living and had to purify his eyeballs so hard that they ended up creating the Sun and the Moon. Ultimately, I guess it didn't go terribly because we got the Sun and Moon as consolation. It's pretty metal that we have the Underworld to thank for the Sun and Moon.
For my own metal moments, I enjoy taking these camping. It's like going off into the woods to summon demons and then you end up partying with them. Sometimes sake wants you to be a demon slayer, and some sake (like Yomi-kun, here) invites you to join the denizens of the Unkown. Next time you drink some Yomi, pour a little out for those in the Underworld, and you might just end up with some fun new friends. 👺😈👻
