Sake Seasons

Japan has four distinct seasons and several customs involving sake are
associated with these. In spring, people enjoy sake while viewing the cherry
blossoms. In autumn, they place chrysanthemum petals in sake cups and drink
the sake while admiring the moon. Winter is a time for appreciating snow scenes
while enjoying sake. Food ingredients also change with the seasons and sakana
(dishes to accompany sake) are served to match the season.
