My mother and I went to the Akebono Sake(Japanese wine) brewery in Yanaizu town, Fukushima last year.

Yanaizu town is located in the western region of Fukushima prefecture and it gradually became a booming area being the temple town of Enzo-ji Temple.

Fukushima prefecture is very famous for its Sake, Japanese wine.

As you know, Tsunami and the nuclear disaster struck in March 2011.

Fukushima’s  products  still struggle with problems related to the nuclear crisis, but  a brewery in Fukushima Prefecture has won the top sake prize in 2015!

This news was a great news for all the sake breweries in Fukushima and also we are very proud of a variety kinds of Sake.

My top recommend is “SnowDrop” of Akebono brewery.

”SnowDrop” is sake made of yogurt, it is low alcohol and tastes sweet.

You can enjoy drinking by being mixed with soda water!


Of course it goes with fish and meat.  You’d love it!
