A great friend of mine: Kazutaka Takashima, owner and master brewer at Takashima Brewery in Numazu City!
The crowd was fast coming in and I knew it would soon become a horrendous scramble! Just a little time left to take pictures!
I decided to take only the pictures of the Daiginjo while tasting them at the same time!
Note that not all breweries submitted their sake for various reasons (I know them, but I would have to write a whole book!)!
