Bringing Local Sake from Yamaguchi to the World
Works that are not yet finished or are awaiting publication
I had an article in Issue 22 of Sake Today (Summer 2019) introducing local sake brewery Yamagata Honten, and I also took included photographs. The story is in print only, and unavailable online.
- Awaiting Publication –
- Hagiyaki Meets Modernity: A profile of two Hagi potters, investigating the postwar developments of traditional pottery under the influence of modern artistic tradition.
- In Progress –
- An in-depth investigation of the entire cultural landscape of Yamaguchi’s sake brewing industry, from rice growing to sake sales, in book form.
As a regular contributor to WorkInJapan.today, I introduce cultural and business concepts, recommend travel in western Japan, and, naturally, write about sake!
