2018 ミス日本酒 須藤亜紗実

[for English Speakers]

Hello, everyone. This is Asami Sudo, 2018 Miss SAKE.

On July 29th, Mr. Nobuaki Aiba, the representative director of Miss SAKE Association and I met Mr. Andre Bishop, Melbourne-based Japanese restaurateur and SAKE bar owner. 

Mr. Andre Bishop has dedicated himself to promote SAKE in Australia since he opened his first sake bar in 2000. Now he works as sake distributor and sake educator besides restaurateur and bar owner.

For such a great contribution to SAKE promotion in Australia, he was inaugurated  as one of SAKE samurais in 2013, and selected as a Visit Kyoto Ambassador in 2014.

This time, we could talk about a potential collaboration of Mr. Andre Bishop and Miss SAKE Association, as well as that of Australia and SAKE.

Mr. Bishop has long been familiar with Japanese culture since his young age, and he told that he was born as an Australian but inside himself is quite Japanese. We were very glad that we could feel his unconditional passion and fondness for Japanese culture through all the conversation with him.

He told us that he thought it as his mission to convey the greatness of SAKE, which is one of the symbols of Japanese culture, to Australian people. And he also showed us great empathy for our Mission as Miss SAKEs to share the greatness of Japanese culture through SAKE with people inside and outside Japan.

To introduce the attractions of SAKE and Japanese culture overseas, it is not enough that only we, Japanese, raise our voices.

But what if a lot of foreign people get attracted by SAKE, and convey its greatness in their own countries?

If such a future is realized, we believe the future of SAKE would be much brighter.

During the valuable opportunity to talk with Mr. Bishop, we experienced a lot of moments to feel strong empathy for each other’s philosophies on SAKE, which made us convinced that we can be a strong partners to head for the same future in Australia and Japan.

As 2018 Miss SAKE, I myself am greatly looking forward to the future collaboration of Mr. Bishop and Miss SAKE Association.

This year is the sixth year of Miss SAKE Association and we are going to promote various developments inside and outside Japan. So, as Miss SAKE, a global ambassador of SAKE and Japanese culture, I’d like to continue to try my best.

It was such a precious opportunity for us to talk with Mr. Andre Bishop, this time.

We extend our appreciation to him for making a valuable time in his busy schedule.

Asami Sudo, 2018 Miss SAKE
