[Update] This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for your participation.

We are happy to announce our Twitter contest to win a pair of tickets to The Joy of Sake in Tokyo.

The event is dedicated to sharing this drink with sake lovers and the unconverted, with a huge variety—384 different sakes will be poured.

To go along with the almost endless variety of nihonshu are appetizers and snacks from 14 restaurants representing five different cuisines: Italian, French, Spanish, Chinese and Japanese.

As you look out over Tokyo by night—the event will be held in the penthouse “Tokubetsu Hall” of the TOC Building, near Gotanda Station—you can listen to the laid-back sounds of live Hawaiian music, a tribute to the event’s origins in Honolulu.

Nearly four hundred kinds of sake to taste? Check.
Food to go along with your tasting experience? Check.
A little bit of Hawaii to warm you up on a November night? Check! How do I win?

Your pair of tickets (a ¥16,000 value) is just a tweet away: Drop in on our Twitter feed, @WeekenderJapan, and when we tweet about the contest, tweet back and tell us what you love about Japan’s national drink using the hashtag #joyofsake. The contest ends at 17:00 on Tuesday, November 5, and we’ll announce the winner that evening at 20:00.

Again, The Joy of Sake will be held on Thursday, November 7, from 18:00 to 21:00 at the TOC Building, near Gotanda Station. Happy tweeting and good luck!
