      Noble Cousin!

      Louis Frederic in Daily Life in Japan claims that medieval Japanese
      drank a variety of flavored sakes.

      Sake flavored with tea flowers, skae perfummed with iris root, &c.
      Ref. page 74 in the English translation.

      In the Azuma Kagami (Mirror of the East) a great New Year's banquet is
      prepared by Yoritomo which consisted only of large bowls of rice and
      sake. These large bowls of rice (oban) were considerd a sign of esteem
      directed toward the vassal.
