Sake Ceremony, 1868 - Lively scene of a festival procession celebrating sake making its way toward a palace. Large floats carrying barrels of sake and drummers make their way down the street, surrounded by a jostling crowd. Laborers carrying sake casks hanging bamboo poles over their shoulders can be seen among the people. At center left, an arched bridge over a moat leads to the castle entrance, where stacks of sake casks reach to the rooftops of a building within the walls. An intriguing image.
