If you pay attention you'll see lots of saké casks, particularly near izakaya and Shinto shrines.  Commonly mislabeled rice wine, saké is fermented much like beer, but with a simultaneous double process using mold and yeast.

Also, if you ever travel to Japan you won't want to ask for saké because it's the Japanese word for alcohol...to order saké you would need to order nihonshu (日本酒), or Japanese alcohol.
