SpotRice washing/steaming

We also enjoyed a great opportunity to see the rice washing/steaming, which is the first step in the sake brewing process. Everybody worked together to wash the rice in this steam-filled, sweet-smelling environment. We followed the cues of the touji, or chief brewer, whose eyes are so serious-looking they seem to be engaging in some kind of ritual or ceremony.
