On 1st September, The sake 2020 project held the sake event named ‘Sake Historia’ #3 with the aim to learn about modern history of sake, because the foundation of sake of today has been established at that time.
We focused Mr. Senzaburo Miura（1847〜1908）, the great man of the Meiji era and Hiroshima’s sake.
Mr. Miura wad born in a big general store, but he started his own business of brewing sake in 1876. After 4 years of big failure, he found that the water of Hiroshima does not fit with the way of sake brewing of the day.null
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.
