Sake Images - Photos From The Soul Of Sake April 2012

Please be a part of our "Sake Images" section by contributing your very select sake related photographs. I'm not looking for a batch of your pictures, rather I'd like to see one or two really powerful shots that could be in a brewery or at your own home tasting or event. Quality over quantity here people! And then write one or two sentences (if you want) about the picture that we can share with the other readers.

Please send these very specific and stellar photos to info @ truesake.com with the subject line "Sake Images".

This month's Image is from an undercover journalist whose name will go unmentioned to protect their identity.



Because of the extremely competitive and harsh physical conditions for making sake, many kurabito (brewery workers) have taken to using steroids and performance enhancing drugs. This picture is of a worker, who claimed to be getting old and vulnerable to losing his job to younger and more fit workers, showing me the needle that he typically injects himself with every other day. He assured me that the industry does not do random drug testing for these performance enhancing drugs.
