Sake has become popular around the world.
If you hear Sake Probably you would imagine a rice wine which is fruity and served hot or cold. But for us, that is called Nihonshu. In Japan, for local people, the word Sake simply means alcoholic beverage, which includes beer, wine, cocktails and so on.
So if you come to Japan don’t order saying just SAKE as the shop owners might not know what you mean!
