Original sake bottle debutante party ~ Sake Brewing from Rice Growing <7th>

Hello everyone! At last, this is the final event of sake-brewing project. We can get the sake made from organic rice we have planted and harvested. We will put our original designed label on the sake bottle on the day and this project will be accomplished.
Also the Amazake (sweet fermented rice drink) making will be provided in a traditional way as the light sake brewing experience. Actually we will ferment the malted rice with special water prepared for brewing. It should become an authentic Amazake. It is highly recommended for women because of lots of vitamin and natural essential amino acid.

~Sake Brewing from Rice Growing~
This project is seven-shot project in Ogawa town which is famous for Japanese paper (traditional craft), Sake (water) and organic farming methods. Approximately one hundred people who are from not only local but also several areas join this project. Let’s brew the best sake together and make great memories over the course one year. Of course you can also just enjoy one or a couple individual activities.
