Nihonshu Girl

PRESENTED ON SEP 02, 2017
IN KYOTO @ VOL 26

From her work as a writer and illustrator, Sumire Matsuura published the book, “Tipsy walks around sake breweries by Nihonshu Girl,” visiting various breweries in Kansai. Her journey is still continuing under the name, Nihonshu Girl. The reason she became interested in Nihonshu was because of her work at a shrine for the God of Sake. While working as a miko at the shrine, she got to know about the history of sacred wine and realized how wonderful it was. Now she wants more people to know about this culture. Her life has become richer by Nihonshu, and here she shares her love and appreciation.

ルポ&イラストレーターとして、関西の酒蔵を巡った自著「日本酒ガールのほろ酔い蔵さんぽ」を出版し、〝日本酒ガール〟として、酒蔵を巡る旅を続けています。そもそも日本酒に興味を持ったきっかけは、京都の“お酒の神様”を祀る神社に就職したこと。巫女をしていた経験の中で、御神酒の歴史にふれ、すばらしさに気づいたとき、もっと多くの人に、この文化を伝えていきたいと思いました。日本酒との出会いが、私の人生を豊かにしてくれたことに感謝を込めてー。

At Girl Scouts of Wisconsin - Badgerland, Girl Scouts are learning to use their dreams and ideas to make, build, design, create, dissect, and analyze.
