The Niigata Sake Festival was a total success this year with over 86,000 sake loving guests, mostly young Japanese ladies from the Tokyo Region. Our own "Doctor Sake" Mike Masuyama was there as well with the entire story and personal insight to the largest sake festival in the world. Niigata Prefecture is well known for its perfect sake brewing climate, underground spring waters, high quality sake rice production and skilled sake breweries, many of which are over 400 years old!
And as a footnote, 86,200 guests@ YEN 2,000 per person is 1.5 million dollars revenue! Not bad revenue for a 2 day event!!!
