The Delightful World of Lemon Sours and Lemon Sour Day in Japan

Exploring Lemon Sour Day in Japan

In the vibrant cocktail scene of Japan, Lemon Sours, or "remon sawā," hold a special place as ubiquitous and refreshing beverages. Crafted from shochu, Japan's equivalent to vodka, combined with soda water and lemon juice, these classic cocktails are a popular choice at izakayas and even available in convenience stores. The drink comes in various canned forms, ranging from bitter to sweet, fizzy, and with different alcohol by volume (ABV) levels, making it a versatile and accessible choice for home enjoyment.

The Origin of Lemon Sour Day

Lemon Sour Day finds its roots in Fushimi-ku, Kyoto, where a brewery producing a range of alcoholic beverages, including shochu and sake, established the occasion. Set on the 30th of each month, Lemon Sour Day encourages people to gather with colleagues, friends, and family to enjoy sours as the month comes to a close. The clever choice of date, where "3" is pronounced as "sa" and "0" as "wa" in Japanese, adds a playful element to this celebration. The Japan Anniversary Association officially recognized and registered this anniversary in 2019, solidifying its place in the cultural calendar.
