Event announcement “Sake Brewing Project” Rice Planting Tour 2024

One of the great community projects of Happo is the planting, harvesting and brewing of the local sake – Hakuba Happo Kurobishi. The project started in 2017. Participants can also join with Hakuba locals to experience the entire process of Japanese sake making, beginning from the planting and harvesting of sake rice. The theme is「You make Happo sake」‼

Sankei Nishiki, a sake rice newly developed by Nagano Prefecture, is grown in the nearby rice fields in Nodaira, Hakuba Village.

Every year, during the rice planting and harvesting season, we hold a hands-on tour. After the work, we celebrate with a small barbecue and taste local sake! We also set up a footbath with Hakuba Happo Onsen spring water to rest those weary legs and enjoy the fine views from this great spot!

The rice planting tour will be held in May 25 this year.
