We held the 1st art event named ‘Sake with Flower’ on 4th March.
This event offers a special experience: having tasty sake and food while watching ikebana and its creative process. We selected 4 kinds of sake from Ichinokura brewery in Miyagi prefecture and made paring food harmoniously. Sayaka Toshima, a performing artist, showcased ikebana with vibrant spring flowers. Sake, ikebana, and the beauty of a spring night.
Kitajima sake brewery is located along old Tokaido Road. Ishibe-syuku, the 3rd post station from Kyoto, is very near from the brewery. The Kitajima family started brewing sake from 1805.
