Hida Furukawa Sake Breweries.
There are two Sake breweries in Hida Furukawa (Gifu prefecture), Kaba brewery and Watanabe brewery. The attached are the photos of the said two breweries. On each front entrance, there is a kind of ball, which is called Sakabayashi. Sakabayashi is made of leaves of Japanese cedar and the leaves are bundled in a ball. Sakabayashis are hung under eaves of Sake breweries’ front door and changed to new ones after new Sake is brewed in late November every year in Hida Furukawa.
