Joint Chamber Event: A Night of Sake

A Sake Night to (If I Can) Remember

Over 200 thirsty guests crammed the ballroom of the Tokyo American Club for the First Annual Night of Sake, held in partnership with the American, German, South-African and Danish Chambers of Commerce.

Over twenty breweries attended the event displaying over 50 different sakes. 

“We had a remarkable evening,” said Donna Cotter, a senior executive with Manulife Financial. “We have tried a few sakes since we arrived in Japan a little over a year ago, but it was great to try so many different sakes in one evening.”
