Japanese Airfield Equipment #2
*And now for the language/culture lesson of the day. In Japanese the word sake (pronounced "SA"-as in "SAmantha" and KE-as in "KEvin"; not as in "key") and osake (with the honorific "o") means any kind of alcoholic drink (whiskey, vodka etc). The word the Japanese use for the drink known to the Western World as sake, is nihonshu. Enjoy your sushi or sashimi with cold or hot sake.
My personal favorite is hirezake which Wikipedia describes as: The fins of the fish [Fugu or pufferfish: the well-known poisonous fish] are dried out completely, baked, and served in hot sake.
