Speaking of food in Niigata, don’t forget sake – any local food’s ideal accompaniment. 80% of the sake bottle is actually water and because water is also an essential ingredient during the making process, Niigata’s ‘soft’ water supply – largely the local snowfall – helps enormously. So, while the snow also seems to clean the indoor air by keeping it at a certain temperature and humidity level, nature’s alcoholic gift on the side comes in the shape of 100 local sake breweries – all specialists in making sake with the area’s traditional light taste.
