Hi. I was wondering if anybody would know where in Osaka or Kyoto I can buy good amazake. The one I buy in my usual supermarket is OK but I have a real craving for the 'unfiltered' kind in which you can actually find bits of rice (I only had it once in one of the tea-shops at Kiyomizudera and it was delicious)

Kind of the like the one in this picture:

You can buy Amazake in the liquor shop.
"kouji-ya" will be good if you buy good Amzake .

"麹 (koji)" Fermentation starter - Wikipedia
Koji shop in Kyoto
"Osaka-ya kouji ten"

Amazake can be made at home.

I put Amazake in soymilk and warm it and drink it.
