What is [Online Sake Brewery Study Abroad]?
[Online Sake Brewery Study Abroad] is a sake regular flight service that allows you to toast directly with the presidents and chief brewers of local sake breweries from the comfort of your own home.
At the same time as purchasing, you will also become a “sake brewery student”.
For sake brewery exchange students, we will deliver a "hands-on box" with sake and snacks from a different region to your home every month, and you can have a toast directly with the sake brewer at a later date!
"Learn and make your usual sake delicious"
The concept of this service is to "learn and make your usual sake delicious" .
Usually, when you buy and drink alcohol at an izakaya or a liquor store, you just drink it, and I do n't think you have any idea who made it or what kind of thought it was.
In the first place, sake has various proper nouns such as junmai, honjozo, ginjo, etc., and most people drink it without knowing it.
However, through this [Online Sake Brewery Study Abroad], you can make a toast directly with the brewer and learn about sake, and you will be able to feel that the usual sake is very delicious!
Also, you will be able to taste not only the taste of the sake, but also the thoughts and personality of the brewer, so once you see the sake brewed by the brewer toasting, you will be able to imagine the face and voice of the brewer.
Have you experienced this too?
In fact, I'm sure you've all had similar experiences.
- At a pub or liquor store
I'm embarrassed to be asked, "What is your favorite flavor of sake?"
- Even if you want to give a drink to your friend, you don't know what to choose.
- Even if I want to drink something else, I always end up choosing the same kind of alcohol.
Actually, I, the representative of this service, had the same problem.
Even if you look at the menu of the izakaya, you don't know what it is, so in the end it's up to the staff and people who are there.
“It would be cool if I could recommend alcohol to a friend or girlfriend someday.”
Even though I thought about it, the days and months had passed.
Your sake life will change dramatically!
However, by using this “Online Sake Brewery Study Abroad”, your sake life will change dramatically from tomorrow!
- You can make a toast directly with local sake brewers who you can't normally talk to.
- You can meet unknown local sake
- Get to know your favorite drink
- Be able to recommend alcohol to friends and girlfriends
- Make Japanese sake lovers all over the country
Originally, I was an amateur when it came to sake, but through this service, which I started with only the passion of "I want to convey the thoughts of the sake brewers!" !
By the way, I've always been sensitive to alcohol, and I'm the type that turns bright red easily, but once I learned about alcohol, I started to enjoy every drop of it.
- I'm not a strong drinker, but I love drinking parties!
- I want to be able to enjoy a little amount because I'm not strong!
Recommended for those who say
What are the characteristics of online sake brewery study abroad?
Well, I will briefly explain 5 characteristics of online sake brewery study abroad!
❶Carefully selected drink comparison set and snacks delivered every month
Once a month, you will receive a set of carefully selected drink comparisons and snacks!
Since you can enjoy famous sake from unknown local sake breweries every month, you will not be influenced by your biased taste.
In addition, the sake breweries that will appear from the next time onwards will be decided by a sake brewery general election by sake brewery exchange students.
If you become a sake brewery student, you can also vote.
(*In some cases, we may request a sake brewery recommended by the management side to appear.)
❷Have a toast directly with the brewers♪Enjoy learning about sake from a professional
Once a month, for two hours on Saturdays from 19:00 to 21:00, you can interact directly with the creators♪
You can listen to basic information about sake, recommended food pairings, stories and thoughts on sake brewing from sake professionals.
Once you make a toast with the creator, you will surely become a fan from the bottom of your heart!
It's a friendly and interactive type of fun! You can make drinking buddies all over the country
A professional MC who is active in TV stations etc. is appointed as a facilitator, and we value interaction between creators and participants, and participants can ask questions directly to the creators!
Also, our meeting has a very homely atmosphere, so I think that even first-timers can feel at ease when joining the meeting.
Furthermore, you can use the small room function of zoom to exchange opinions with sake fans all over the country, so you can make drinking buddies all over the country.
After the first party, we also hold an optional second party, so if you don't have enough to talk about, you can also participate in the second party.
Even if you miss it, you can watch the archive
Even if it is inconvenient on the day of the online sake brewery study abroad, there is no need to worry.
You can watch the archive at a later date, so you can drink while watching the archive, and it can also be used as a retrospective study.
Also, if you want to take a break this month or cancel your contract, you can skip or cancel at any time, so don't worry♪
You can always start again if you want.
(*For the first application, until the deadline set each time.
For the second and subsequent skip/cancellation procedures, procedures must be completed by 23:59 on the last day of each month.)
By participating in the online sake brewery study abroad program, you can gain “ learning about life” and “new connections” through sake!
The sake you drink while listening to the story of the brewer is really delicious ^^!
Why did you decide to launch this service?
After explaining our service overview, let me explain a little why we decided to launch this service in the first place.
Originally an inbound PR company
Our company has an office in Fukuoka, and the main company was launched in October 2015 when I was a senior in college.
Originally, he had a life-changing encounter while studying in Australia. I was doing tourism PR for foreign tourists.
Also, among foreign tourists, we focused on repeat tourists, and since repeaters tend to go to rural areas, our main focus was to convey the appeal of rural areas in Fukuoka.
All business suspended due to the new coronavirus
However, in 2020, due to the influence of the new coronavirus, the number of inbound tourists is overwhelming.
Not only our business, but also restaurants, department stores, and various other industries that were our clients at the time were greatly affected.
Above all, I was shocked when I saw my acquaintance's restaurant going bankrupt in front of me, and when I heard the current sales figures.
And the number of surplus inventory that I saw when I visited the sake brewery with whom I had a long-standing connection.
“What should we do after next year?”
I didn't have the words to answer the sake brewery who leaked such a voice.
Demand for food and drink will be 70-80% in the future
The times are changing due to this corona.
I think that the demand for eating and drinking will decrease to 70-80% of the conventional level due to the promotion of online and telework.
In fact, even though the coronavirus has calmed down (as of July 2022), it is true that the frequency of business dinners is decreasing.
As the economy becomes 70-80%, how can we add value and weave it into the future?
We are facing a time of change.
Added value of “sharing the story of sake and food”
So how do we add value? ?
As a result of thinking for a long time, I arrived at sharing "the story of alcohol and food" .
The story begins with the “thoughts of the creator”. That's our theory.
The point is, instead of simply eating the sake and food, it will be more delicious if you know what kind of person, what kind of thought, and what kind of process you go through to make this sake and food. .
I thought that it would lead to the added value of sake and food.
If so, let's connect producers and consumers directly.
That is the starting point of this service.
About [Real Sake Brewery Study Abroad]

Real Sake Brewery Study Abroad is a 1-day brewery experience where you can experience sake brewing with the brewers at the brewery and receive the freshly squeezed sake that was involved in the brewing process at your home!
I would like to tell people that "sake made by myself is delicious!" and shorten the physical and psychological distance between the maker and the drinker.

Create life-changing encounters through sake
I believe that sake is the world's best tool for connecting people .
“Wajo Ryoshu”: A good sake that brings out Japanese harmony.
As the saying goes, I would like to create a service that connects all people from the heart through sake and changes the lives of those who drink today's sake.
It's been a long time, but we also have a big thought for this service.
We still have a long way to go with the new service, but we will do our best to make sure everyone can enjoy it, so please continue to support us! !
