Takara is an industry giant known for its shōchu and chuhai available at supermarkets and convenience stores across Japan. We found this bottle at OK Store which seems to be a major distribution channel for Takara. At around 600 yen, we were a little reluctant to buy, however, curiosity prevailed. With a strong nose of cereal, green, and - not surprising - alcohol, the Ryōma ga yuku ("Ryōma goes his way", alluding to a historical novel by Japanese author Shiba Ryōtaro) turned out to be quite mild. It has a slightly spicy, alcoholic finish but gets milder if you leave it in the refrigerator for a few days. It's an easy-to-drink table sake but I doubt we will have it again on our table. Also available as cask sake (2-litre box).
