Having studied in Hiroshima – one of the most famous Japanese prefectures for sake – Soichiro worked in Tokyo for 10 years, before moving to Amsterdam and founding SAKENOMism in 2020. His hometown, Nagasaki, has a historical relationship with The Netherlands and his hope is to bridge these two cultures further with a love for sake. Not to mention bringing sake to other European countries, thanks to his connections with breweries in Japan, namely in Kumamoto, Nagano and Hiroshima.
