Recently, Sake is popular not only in Japan but also oversea. Sake was born in Nara.
The project between university, company & temple and Nara city was to reconstruct an extinct and forgotten method of making sake and success to reconstruct same sake as of 500years ago.
They tried to find same method and same lactic acid bacterium from the temple on the mountain to reconstruct Sake and it took them 5years. They took many samples of lactic acid bacterium and checked. And finally, they found it.
This sake is called Bodaimoto. I am sure this sake will be popular among people overseas because of its fruity taste.
