Seek the Story of Sake is an international sake e-commerce website provided by NTT DOCOMO. The company is slated to begin the limited-time sale of sets that will allow customers to experience Japanese flower viewing(Hanami) from home.

The blossoming cherry trees in spring in Japan are a beautiful, enrapturing sight.
Flower viewing was a popular activity for tourists before the pandemic, but as it has now become difficult to visit Japan, we prepared a special set of Japanese sake and foods that will allow customers to experience flower viewing without needing to visit Japan. This special set, available only for a limited time (only in April), is a must-have to experience a Japanese spring.

Products include the following four offerings:
【Early Spring Set】
Light, bubbling sparkling sake is a great way to raise a toast to spring. It tastes great as is, but adding kompeito sugar to the glass transforms it into a lovely, slightly sweet cocktail. This set is perfect for those who love sweets with their matcha cheesecake.

【Sakura Tea-Party Set】
