Fun Link Friday: The Oldest Sake Shop in Tokyo

What a week it has been. In all the chaos of the news, I barely remembered to look up a Fun Link Friday this week. But in the end, what we could all use is a drink (if that’s your thing). So here’s a mini-documentary that was posted to Savvy Tokyo about Toshimaya tavern and brewery, the oldest sake shop in Tokyo. Clocking in at 420 years old, the business was first established in 1596. In the video, originally posted here, you can take a peek into the lives of people passionate about keeping traditions alive in Japan while innovating for a new generation. Stay well and enjoy, everybody!
