Aizu, Japan, in Fukushima Prefecture’s western side, is a wonderful region.
Fukushima Prefecture’s Aizu region is famous for its sake. The Lords of Aizu clan promoted sake brewing during severe famine in the late 18th century as a way to stimulate the local economy.
10 years after the 2011 Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami, residents and businesses of Fukushima are developing new and creative ways of breathing life back into the prefecture.
