Fukushima prefecture wants to show its appreciation for its supporters by offering sake tastings of its 158 brands from its 54 breweries, live entertainment, and Fukushima foods in a festival setting.
Two months ago the results of the 2016 “Annual Japan Sake Awards” were announced. 30 Fukushima brands won awards, 22 of which were selected for Gold Prizes. For 5 consecutive years, Fukushima prefecture has been ranked number one in Japan for the number of Gold Prizes. Visitors can taste these sake as well as a complete range of Fukushima sake at the event.
