AKAMA-JUKU FESTIVAL AND SAKE STOREHOUSE FIRST OPENING OF THE YEAR

Ever year in February, the Edo Period post town of Akama-juku (Munakata City) organises a cultural festival to celebrate the first opening of sake storehouses of the year. Across two days, local specialties are served in stalls in the street which are closed off from traffic. Katsuya, the Japanese sake brewery opens its storehouse to the public and provides tasting of sake. You can also visit old houses and experience a local friendly atmosphere. On the Sunday, spectators can also enjoy a parade and marriage ceremonies in traditional clothing.
