Hi! this is teacher Jemuel, I want share this simple information with you
|Doburoku festival is an annual Shinto event taking place at Shirakawa-go and it is held from 14th to 19th of October every year
Doburoku is a milky white, unrefined sake made from rice, rice malt, and water.
It is is brewed from January through October and the festival is the first day we can drink the NEW doburoku!!
It is interesting to know that there is a specific festival that is related to wines. Here in the Philippines we have unrefined wine too and it is called “Lambanog.” “Lambanog” or coconut wine consists of pure sap, with no bark mixed in, and it is generally milky white in color or occasionally it will have no color at all. Unlike most wines this wine is made to consume when it is fresh because it turns sour extremely rapidly. But sad to say we don’t celebrate a specific festival for it.
Most of us know only how to drink wines but we tend to forget the true story behind how it was made and when it was produced. I can say that Japanese people really value their culture. They really show patriotism to their own products. This kind of festival made me more curious to visit Japan in the future.
That’s it for now! Once again, this is teacher Jemuel and See you in my class!
