Self-introduction of the person in charge of the blog

Nice to meet you all! !

I'm Miharu Harada, who works in Tenryohai!

Recently, I opened a Nakahito account on Twitter and have been able to talk with everyone.

Thank you! <(__)>Pekori

In the future, I would like to update my blog about once a month, so I started by introducing myself.

I thought I'd write about my personal story and the reason why I started working in this industry.

Please join us!

Miharu Harada

Born February 17, 19xx

Since my childhood, I have moved from Osaka to Chiba to Mexico to Chiba to the Philippines to Tokyo.

I still don't know the answer to "Where are you from?" smile

His hobbies are violin, horseback riding, and tea ceremony.

That being said, I have an image of a young lady in a good place,

Violin is club activity, horseback riding is Western, tea ceremony is also club activity.

Graduated from Sophia University, Faculty of Foreign Languages

During my studies, I also went to the University of Cologne in Germany as an exchange student.

[The trigger for interest in Japanese culture]

I am a returnee who moved around Japan and overseas until I graduated from high school, and returned to Japan for the university entrance exam.

Overseas, people took pride in the high quality of Japanese goods and technology, and the items they wanted as souvenirs were all unique Japanese daily necessities, such as convenient stationery and makeup tools, that you wouldn't see anywhere else. .

On the other hand, my friends' souvenirs were rooted in ancient culture, such as key chains of girls in cute ethnic costumes, Middle Eastern condiments, and French chocolates.

I noticed.

In Japan, the latest culture can attract attention, but the good old Japanese culture does not.

and I don't know it myself.

After that, I learned tea ceremony from my mother's teacher, and joined the tea ceremony club at Sophia University.

This is what triggered my interest in Japanese culture.

Also, I vaguely began to think that I would like to do a job that spreads Japanese culture overseas in the future.

Majored in German at university.

I decided to major because I wanted to learn about languages ​​and cultures that I had never touched before.

I love beer, which I didn't like when I was studying abroad in Germany!

All Germans talk about their beer preferences in everyday conversation.

That's it, regardless of age or gender! ! !

Even in Germany, the taste of beer varies greatly depending on the region.

"I like this taste, I don't like that. Wait, it's water!"

While I was retorting in my heart, their conversation was very serious and fulfilling about their own culture, and most of all, they really enjoyed sharing their own culture.

The sight of “Japanese brewed sake” is every day. . .

Thanks to you, I can talk a little about German beer.

I returned to Japan and graduated from university with such a daily life stuck in a corner of my heart.

[The opportunity to work in the sake industry]

With that feeling, I thought I would have many options for my future, so I got a job at a securities company.

There, I realized that a sales job was suitable for me, who liked talking to people.

However, I didn't use English or German, so I wasn't able to make the most of the skills I had acquired and my background.

With such impatience and frustration, I started looking for a job at an interpreter/translation company that can do business regardless of language.

When he was looking for a new job, he told Kato, who is now the representative of Tenryohai, that he wanted to expand his sake business both domestically and internationally, that he wanted someone with overseas experience who could speak English, and wanted to work together. was put on.

What a coincidence and timing! ! !

I wanted to spread Japanese culture someday, so I can make it happen! I was happy.

And I couldn't help but feel that it was fate that he wanted the way I wanted to work.

Of course, I immediately answered OK.

And I realized that the feeling I was stuck in Germany was that I didn't drink sake with my friends, and I didn't have anything to say.

That's how Kato's call changed my dream of "spreading 'Japanese culture'", which was vague, into a concrete dream of "spreading 'Japanese sake'."

[Become a member of the Tenryo Cup...]

Half a year has already passed since I came to Tenryohai.

My first job was "Niigata Sake no Jin". Baptism, isn't it?

What do you want to do to spread sake in the future?

"I want to see the sights I saw in Germany in Japan"! !

I want people of all ages to talk about sake from their own country!

And there is Japanese sake. Then there is peace.

Through alcohol, we can connect with people all over the world, and there is a connection and peace of mind that transcends nationality and race.

I want to aim for such a world.

No, I aim!

“Wajo Ryoshu” is always our motto at Tenryohai.

As a first step, from now on, I would like to do a lot of things such as reporting on shops where you can buy and drink Tenryo Sake Cups through my blog.

For everyone's sake, I would like to introduce a shop that offers a place on the blog.

Making friends with the people next to you at the bar is one of the real pleasures of drinking.

I'm probably alone when I visit the store, so I'm looking for people to go out drinking with me.

Also, I would like to write an experimental report on new ways to drink sake.

Well, I have a lot of things I want to write about on my blog, but as those of you who have read this far may have noticed, my writing skills are lacking...

I will do my best. I'm going to be devoted to it.

First of all, I would like to read a lot of essays.

I would be happy if you could support not only the Tenryo Sake Cup, but also my writing skills. (And I would be more happy if you could get along with me on Twitter. )

From now on, I will do my best to convey Tenryosaka sake and the motto to everyone in a fun way, so please support me!
