The History of Wheat Sake and the Neighborhoods of Nakanoshima

MATSUNAGA Kazuhiro (Associate Professor, Tekijuku Commemoration Center, Osaka Unviersity)

There are many important figures in the history of beer and whiskey in Japan, such as the first person to brew beer in Japan (Dutch trading house captain Hendrik Doeff), the first Japanese person to brew beer (Western Studies scholar KAWAMOTO Komin), the first Japanese person to start a beer business (businessman SHIBUYA Shozaburo), the first permanent beer hall in Japan (Asahi-ken), and the creators of the first whiskey made in Japan (businessman TORII Shinjiro and distiller TAKETSURU Masataka). When talking about the history of beer and whiskey in Japan, one cannot forget these people and the history of the neighborhoods of Nakanoshima, which we'll introduce at this seminar.
