[JAPAN] The Pavilion Japan of Expo 2015 Milano x Tohoku Region

The same thing as Sushi, Japanese Sake is also a part of Japanese culture that always sought after by foreign visitors, and many of us only have a superficial understanding about the Japanese Sake. Sake is a Japanese rice wine made by fermenting rice that has been polished to remove the bran. Everyone knows that wine, beer, and sake regarded as alcoholic beverages, but the brewing process of each product is different from one another, makes the alcohol content is also different. Undiluted Sake usually contains 18-20% ABV (alcohol by volume).


So, do you remember about the Tohoku region in Japan that I ever tell you before this article? At the end of July 2015, they have held an event called Expo 2015 Milano, held in Milan, Italy. Precisely between the date of July 24 to 27, anyone can come to taste a variety of Sake in the Jizake – Bar of the Pavilion Japan. Well, not only that, but they also have intense workshops, tastings, cooking shows, and talk shows during that period.
