2019 Miss SAKE 準グランプリ 塚原菜実香

[For English Speakers]

Hello, everyone.
I am Namika Tsukahara, 2019 Miss SAKE runner-up.

On August 10, I participated in the “kurabiraki” of Sasaki sake brewery in Rakuchu, Kyoto, which means the opening of a sake brewery of the year.
Sasaki sake brewery was established in 1893, and is the only sake brewery in the center area of Kyoto.

The place of Sasaki sake brewery is located to south of the used place of general Hideyoshi Toyotomi’s house, and since his hobby was tea ceremony, this place is famous for its beautiful water.

In Rakuchu, Kyoto, there used to be a lot of sake breweries because of the clear water, but they sharply decreased and now Sasaki sake brewery is the only one which remains in the area.

In order to pass down the original way of making sakes in Rakuchu, Sasaki sake brewery continues to make great sakes based on the philosophy called “Rakuchu Densho”, which means passing down the original way of making sakes in Rakuchu.

In the kurabiraki, students from Bukkyo University managed many events such as a flute concert, a live, a quiz competition, a tour of the brewery, and sake tasting.
I really enjoyed those events and spent great time with the participants.


In the tour of the sake brewery, a chief brewer explained the way of making sake, and I was impressed to see the place where great sakes are brewed.
And it was an honor that I could give a toast with everyone at the joyous event, kurabiraki.

Through the kurabiraki, I was able to realize that sakes contain the history and a thing of each sake brewery, and I strongly want people all over the world to know how powerful and great charms sakes have.

People of Sasaki sake brewery and all the people involved, thank you very much for the great experience.
