Kagami-biraki Experience -Best Celebration Ceremony at the Birthplace of Japanese Sake!（Genuine Plan）
In Japan, the lid of a sake barrel is broken open at special occasions or events in a ceremony called “Kagami-biraki.” This is to wish health and well-being at times of celebration and new beginnings. Kagami-biraki ceremonies are often conducted at weddings and New Year parties. Let’s celebrate with a “Kagami-biraki” experience and make some special memories of your time in Japan.
