Produced by soccer superstar Hidetoshi Nakata, Craft Sake Week is a 10-day event at Roppongi Hills that will feature some of the best artisanal sake that Japan offers, which includes a wide spectrum of nihonshu, shochu and umeshu (plum wine). Each day a different theme will be featured, and the selection of beverages and brewers will change.
For the event’s launch on Friday, the fine sake brewers of Fukushima were in the lamp light. Over the coming days, sake lovers can look forward to themes that feature everything from master brewers to the new kids on the block.
Here’s a selection of scenes from the event’s launch on Feb. 5.
