A large green ball made of cedar branches show that the brewery has just started pressing sake made from the new rice harvest.
It goes brown as time goes by.
Please compare to Sugidama hanging outside sake brewers of the second photo.

We could buy sake, plum liquor, sweets called saka-manju, Japanese apricot and sake lees as a souvenir.
These are so Japanese like and definitely make a hit.

Nowadays sake is so expensive in China. Kubota−one of the famous sake in Japan costs 20,000 yen in China. Wow!
Two million yen is maximum to spend money in overseas for Chinese and naturally they expand their interests to experiences.
I am sure you like this spot and looking forward to seeing you there.

Happy Friday to all of you.
