Kagami-biraki Experience -Sake Barrel Ceremony in  the Birthplace of Japanese Sake! (Simple Plan)   

In Japan, the lid of a sake barrel is broken open at special occasions or events in a ceremony which is called “Kagami-biraki.”  This is to wish health and well-being at times of celebration and new beginnings.
