“Nihonshu no Hi” means World Sake Day. This day is celebrated every first of October and is a tribute to the typical Japanese drink.

And it is not celebrated for no reason. Every first of October, the production of sake in the country begins in the traditional way. This season is just the right time to harvest the sake rice. Winter is also the ideal time for fermentation.
