This beautiful, 112 ft long, Tall Ship, The Phoenix, sailed into Plymouth a few days ago.
She is here to take part in celebrations marking the 400th anniversary of the return to Plymouth of The Clove, thus concluding the first UK trade mission to Japan.
Without doubt, one of the most popular parts of the commemoration celebrations
was the Sake Tasting Stall.

It can feel like sailing through an L S Lowry painting
