Sakura Season Is Here! Try Sake With Sakura Yeast!

Sakura Season Is Here!

Every year, millions of Japanese set out for sakura viewing to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom. The sakura tree symbolizes spring, hope, beauty, and the beginning of a new life for the Japanese.

The beautiful sakura flower has been incorporated into a variety of artwork and poetry, as well as food and drink. Particularly, the Japanese view cherry blossoms as symbols of impermanence and transience of life because they only bloom for a short period of time.

The season also marks the beginning of school and the fiscal year, both of which start in April, so it is full of new meetings, activities, and energy. Besides these deeper meanings, the sight of cherry trees in full bloom is simply breathtaking!

Sake With Sakura Yeast

Tatsuriki Himejijo Sakura Kobo Sake is a very unique sake made with yeast that was developed from the cherry blossoms that bloom at Himeji Castle, a World Heritage site.

Researchers at Himeji Dokkyo University cultivated and isolated 242 different yeast strains from the petals of the cherry blossoms that bloom in Himeji Castle. After two years of research, the yeast was commercialised in the spring of 2015, with the first sales starting in time for the grand opening of Himeji Castle. The result is an unprecedented premiere, with a clean taste reminiscent of white wine, but still retaining the taste of sake.

Tatsuriki Himejijo Sakura Kobo Sake has a refreshing taste with a sourness like that of plums. The characteristic sourness is unique to wild yeast. It comes in a quite charming pink glass bottle which reminds of the walls of Himeji castle. This is a sake that represents the beauty of Himeji castle surrounded by cherry blossoms, and we invite you to try this masterpiece!
