About the Joy of Sake:
Hawaii’s love of sake can be traced back to the early days of Japanese immigration, and that love remains just as strong today. Joy of Sake is a Honolulu Event for both sake aficionados and those who would like to learn about this rice wine. 

With more than 400 sakes on hand to sample, you’ll want to be strategic in your choices since trying them all isn’t possible. To make it easier, event organizers have marked each type of sake with a symbol in the program. Categories include sakes not available in the U.S., sakes with the highest alcohol content, high-end sakes, and more. Once you decide what type of sakes you want to try—or you decide that you want to try a couple from each category—the clearly marked program makes it easy to carry out your plan!

Billed as an event dedicated to “Celebrating the World’s Finest Sake,” Joy of Sake is one of the biggest events of its kind in the world. That popularity means there is always a chance that the Honolulu Event will sell out early, so reserve your tickets as soon as possible. 

Tickets are $105 per person in advance or $115 at the door. In addition to the chance to sip some of the 400+ sakes on offer, about a dozen local chefs will be dishing up gourmet food as well. Come ready to drink, eat, and learn all about the joys of sake!

Ambassador Hotel Waikiki is conveniently located near the Hawaii Convention Center, the venue for this event. Our Oahu Hotel is also near top dining, shopping, and attractions.
