Night Museum Sake Tasting

December 14 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm

How about spending an autumn evening sipping local sake and viewing some impressionist masterpieces at the Hiroshima Museum of Art? Kimono fitting optional!

Sample 5 or 6 different kinds of Hiroshima’s top sake varieties, hot or cold in the grounds of Hiroshima Museum of Art. The event starts at 3pm, but after the museum shuts its doors to the general public, you can have the whole place to yourself and take your time your time viewing the museum’s small, but impressive collection of modern European art. For an extra charge, kimono fittings are available for both men and women in and you can try your hand at making wagashi Japanese sweets or get a lesson in shogi, a traditional game that resembles chess.

Every participant gets a commemorative wooden masu sake cup to take home.
