Omiki お神酒

I was on duty in this morning.
I heard sound of a distant Japanese drum...
When I opened the door, 2 little girls were standing with Sake.
The sake is called "Omiki", it's from local shinto shrine festival to pray the prosperous business!

I was asked by them to drink Sake early in the morning!! HAHAHA

Why did they serve Sake???

It is said that, first of all, you can share the same thing (sake) with shinto gods, and second, to get drunk from it a little. This way you can feel the gods closer.

I get drunk very easily so I was a little tipsy from the morning! ;-)
