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. Kagami-biraki ceremonies are often conducted at wedding ceremonies and New Year parties. Let’s celebrate with a Kagami-biraki experience and make some special memories of your time in Japan.
