Fukushima Prefecture Opening Sake Specialty Store in NYC
Fukushima Prefecture is planning to open an antenna shop tentatively called, Fukushima Sake Challenge Shop, featuring goods and sake from the prefecture in New York later this year. The hope is the shop will help to quell rumors of contamination from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant and encourage exports in the U.S. The United States is the largest export destination of prefectural sake, and in the fiscal year 2016, the export volume was 160 thousand liters, 48% of which was for the United States.
The shop will be located in the center of Manhattan and will feature seasonal sales and the award winning sake made in Fukushima. A possible tasting space will allow customers to enjoy Fukushima sake right in the store before they by.
Travel Website Veltra Focuses on Sake to Attract Inbound Tourists
The site’s three primary features include:
1) An emphasis on storytelling in relation to sake and related experiences.
2) Tour options that expand beyond only sake tastings and brewery tours, including an array of unique experiences.
3) VELTRA original tour offerings.
Users can expect the site to expand its services in the near future. Definitely worth a bookmark for those coming to Japan in the near future.
Mt. Fuji and Cherry Blossoms Shine in the New “Moonlight Glass”
The Moonlight Glass is the world’s first to use a unique ”bright-in-the-dark” technology. The shining images of Mt. Fuji and cherry blossoms on the glass do not use electricity or batteries, but they emit light.
So, how is it done?
The luminescent mechanism was developed by fusing phosphorescent and sandblasting technology. The glow changes from day to night and depending on the drink inside. Drinks with a good head of foam are particularly fantastic as the light reflects on the bubbles.
The glass use no electricity or batteries, and only needs to be ”charged” by leaving it under a light source for about ten minutes. Even fluorescent light, LED, and of course, sunlight will do. The glow lasts for about an hour after its charged. Plenty of time to finish a drink or two.
