In addition to sake and great food, the 7th annual Kampai Toronto will have a fully licensed Outdoor Market with a Japanese-style beer garden, music, culture, crafts and more.

So why not head to T-dot for some great sake, eh?

New Niigata University Sakeology Center Proves Popular With Students

Niigata University’s opening of the all-new Sakeology Center program was swamped with students interested in learning about sake brewing, business, and culture. More than 820 students signed up for the 300 person-limit program, resulting in a lottery to decide who would be able to attend.

The selected students gathered in an overflowing classroom on the Niigata University campus and began their sake journey, learning not only sake brewing, but also distribution, liquor laws and taxes, and of course, tasting.

When asked why he signed up, fourth year student, Mr. Kumagaya, 22, said he was hoping to learn how to make and sell sake in hopes of selling sake abroad in the future.

Being the prefecture with the most sake breweries in Japan, as well as one of the nation’s most highly-regarded rice-growing regions, establishing such a curriculum seems like a no-brainer. While a very exciting development for the industry and the next generation of sake-curious, there remains just one question:

What took so long?
