Speaking of July, other than the anniversary of Saketora, there is also an important festival: the romantic Double Seventh Festival. Although generally speaking, the festival refers to the 7th July of the lunar calander, but in Japan from the Meiji Restoration, people is celebrating it at the Gregorian calendar, and among all the celebrations, the one in Sendai should be the biggest. Although due to the epidemic, the celebration of Double Seventh Festival cannot be as big as it used to be, but in such a romantic festival, it is also a pleasure to be able to enjoy the sake and talk with your beloved one at home. Therefore, Saketora has found two new sakes with the theme of the Big Dipper, so that sake fans can have a little more romance in the festival and enjoy an atmospheric summer festival at home.
