The First Step in Sake Brewing: Rice Polishing

Period: Sep. 14 (Wed.) - Nov. 20 (Sun.)
Every step of sake brewing is carefully handled to produce tasty sake. The very first step in sake brewing is rice polishing. Since the Edo period (1603-1867), rice polishing has been making great technical advances. This exhibition focuses on the history of rice polishing technology.

I’m deeply interested in the works of art depicting the four seasons and the items that make me feel the history.


Look! Various exhibitions are held as well as those related to sake and sakura!!
