Sake Brewery Tour & Label Making for Sake Bottle ~ Sake Brewing from Rice Growing <6th>

Hello everyone! Surprisingly we have only two events left from this sake-brewing project. For this time, we are going to visit one of famous local sake breweries and learn about all steps of sake brewing process.
Also we will experience the label making for the sake bottle using Japanese handmade ‘washi’ paper named *Hosokawashi. Enjoy designing your original label with water colors or colored pencils. At this time the bottle won’t be ready yet, so please look forward to seeing how your final look until the last event!
This event will be over around noon. So please join us for the lunch time after the event!

*Japanese handmade ‘washi’ paper added to UNESCO intangible heritage list (The Japan Times)
