Sake Images - Photos From The Soul Of Sake July 2011
Please send these very specific and stellar photos to info @ truesake.com with the subject line "Sake Images"
This month's sake image comes from Elliot Kallen from Santa Rosa, CA:
|"Hi folks, here's a shot of the sake barrel display at Matsuo taisha (Shinto shrine) in Arashiyama. Why sake barrels at a shrine? Matsuo taisha is home to the kami (nature spirit or god) of water. Sake brewers come to Matsuo taisha to pray for good water for their brewery. (If I'm not mistaken, Beau, this is where you were inducted into the ranks of Sake Samuarai.) Hope this works for you."|
(Indeed you are correct Elliot, it's where they hold each year's induction for the Sake Samurai, and double indeed - it does work for me!! Great pic!)
