    ... the process is still very manual, After the tour it was tasting time! I've never been s big fan of sake, but this was clearly higher quality stuff than I have had before. They also broke out yuzu, strawberry, and tomato flavored sake. Loved the yuzu.

On Sunday we got to see one of the coolest things ever: Asimo. Asimo is a robot that was designed by Honda and we got to see him in action in a Honda museum!
