Aquarium Sake Night
Enjoy the very best sake from different regions of Miyagi Prefecture alongside relaxing aquarium views.
The Sake Night Aquarium is an annual event running since 2017, reserved for adults over the age of 20. It was originally created in the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011 as a way to support and showcase Miyagi Prefecture's local breweries.
Featured are six breweries from Miyagi Prefecture's representative port towns, notably Otokoyama Honten and Kakuboshi from Kesennuma, Hirakou Shuzo from Ishinomaki, Saura and Abekan Shuzo from Shiogama, and Sasaki Shuzoten from Yuriage. What's more, the Zao Shuzo and Kinai Shuzo breweries will make an appearance as this year's special guests! The breweries will all serve the sake's themselves with the hopes of sharing the wonders of sake with the guests.
※You are free to visit the aquarium on the day of your visit.
