To read more about where the money raised from this auction is going, please click here. As noted by Decanter, over 100 sake breweries have been affected by the earthquake and tsunami. This is not just an infrastructure issue; the planting and tending of rice fields in 2011 will be especially difficult with the shortage of raw materials, fuel, and transportation while the threat of radiation looms.  The money raised from this auction will go to the Japan Sake Brewers Association who will distribute the funds to the sake breweries that need it the most. We thank you for taking your time and money to help preserve this vital part of Japanese culture.
