Talk & Tasting
Thursday, January 23, 6:30 PM 

Enriched in history, festivals and breathtaking sights, Kanagawa is an ideal destination for any traveler. With so much to see and do, Kanagawa is not just a side trip from Tokyo, but a unique region waiting to be explored. Home to history-rich Kamakura, which once served as the political center of medieval Japan, Kanagawa features the stunning Daibutsu, or Great Buddha, a towering bronzed icon that has stood since the 13th century. Travelers looking to de-stress can visit the resort town of Hakone, prized for its many hot springs and natural views. For this program, we are joined by Kanagawa experts Hitoshi Suzuki, Director, JETRO NY, Kanagawa Division, Nanako Sadasue, Director, Maker's Shirt Kamakura Co., Ltd. and Kenichi Noda, Odakyu Electric Railway Co., Ltd. Moderated by Susan Miyagi McCormac, founder, JapanCulture·NYC.

Followed by a tasting reception featuring maguro donburi from Misaki port and sake from Kanagawa.

Sake List: 
• Tensei Endless Summer Tokubetsu Honjozo
• Tensei Song of the Sea Junmai Ginjo
• Izumibashi Megumi Blue Junmai Ginjo
• Izumibashi Megumi Red Junmai Genshu
• Izumibashi Kimoto Junmai Kurotonbo

Guests will be able to admire and purchase select pieces of kichu-yo pottery, crafted in a traditional climbing kiln in Kamakura by ceramic artist Kifumi Kawamura, and kamakura-bori lacquerware from the 120-year-old shop Hakkodo in Kamakura.

All guests will receive a Bokksu set, an assortment of snacks from Kanagawa called "New Year in Kanagawa" and a sensu (folding fan) from Kamakura Shirts.
