Organized by Japan Finder and co-organized by Hasegawa Saketen, the sake tasting event “Sake Festa in Causeway Bay!” on November 15, 2017 was held in the members-only salon “The Work Project” in Causeway Bay.
“Sake Festa in Causeway Bay!” is a partner event under the “Japan Autumn Festival in HK” coordinated by the Consulate-General of Japan in Hong Kong. A large group of guests from Hong Kong attended the event, making it a great success. The 4 premium sakes that were served to the guests, namely “Hakurakusei Junmai Daiginjo” by Miyagi Niizawa brewery, “Raifuku Junmai Daiginjo” by Ibaraki Raifuku brewery, “Kiddo Junmai Daiginjo” by Wakayama Heiwa brewery, and “Suigei Junmai Daiginjo” by Kouchi Suigei brewery, were the highlight of the event. President Niizawa of Miyagi Niizawa brewery, President Fujimura of Raifuku brewery, President Okura of Kouchi Suigei brewery, and Wakayama Heiwa brewery, also attended the event to treat the guests to the sakes of their breweries.
The menu of the night featured delicacies prepared by the head chef of Tempura TENKAI Hong Kong. They were specially made with ingredients that were available on Japan Finder’s online shop (tuna cans, boiled peanuts, and barbecued pork).
The high quality of the sakes and the matching delicacies were well received by our guests.
Many of the guests of Hong Kong commented that despite not knowing the names of the sakes at the time of tasting, they were immensely impressed by the flavor and depth of Japanese sake.
After Mr. Ogasawara, the Chairman of Japan Finder, greeted the guests, President Niizawa of Miyagi Niizawa brewery made an introduction of the jointly developed sake in a new bottle (4 bottles / pack) on behalf of the 4 aforementioned breweries. The event took on a great atmosphere as President Fujimura of Raifuku brewery proposed a toast.
The widely praised sakes that were served in this tasting event will be on sale on Japan Finder’s online shop “Oishii Japan”. Please also look forward to the second and third sake tasting sessions in Hong Kong, Taiwan, or some other places in the future!
