This exhibition originally began with the concept to create a new value and meaning for sake by introducing it as a part of having fun to the younger generation though alternative Nihonshu fiction, a point of entry where the interesting phenomenon becomes a culture in itself. Here we will take a look in particular at the ‘one-cup’ collaboration. 30 famous creators and artists such as manga artist Fujio Akatsuka, Moyoco Anno, and popular illustrator wataboku collaborated on this ‘Creators Design One Cup’ project. There are one cup designs exclusive to this event, making it an unmissable change for Japanese manga and anime fans.

In addition to the one cup exhibit, renowned photographer Meisa Fujishiro’s pairing of an Issho-bin (sake bottles of 1.8 litres) and a girl is memorable, and can be viewed as part of the ‘Twinkling Isshobin Girl Photo Exhibit’. This photo collection along is enough to convince anyone that this truly is a unique event home to a fusion of the subcultures of sake and Japan!
