Craft Sake Week

12:00pm – 9:00pm

Join one of the world’s largest sake culture event, happening at Roppongi Hills Arena from April 18 to 29.

What happens?

120 sake breweries from across Japan will be serving original sake, some of which are limited edition. The event provides a great opportunity for those to learn more about the sake industry. The event is seperated into different themed days, with a new selection of sake available daily.

There will also be 15 different restaurants — including some that are difficult to reserve — bringing signature dishes for you to enjoy alongside your sake. The restaurants have a spread of different drinking snacks, from cold cuts to soup and ramen. There’s also some cold snacks, soft drinks, and even Japanese crafts on sale.


Each day, there will be a different theme and breweries in attendance:

  • April 18:“Go for it, Hokuriku!! Day”. Breweries from Hokuriku will be joining this day to help revitalize the area which was affected by the Noto earthquake in January 2024.
  • April 19: “Sparkling Sake Day”.
  • Apeil 20: “East Star Day”. Breweries from East Japan.
  • April 21: “Western Star Say”. Breweries from West Japan.
