▷ Event background Due to the recent influence of corona, the export volume and inbound consumption of sake are decreasing. Sake breweries that make sake continue to have surplus sake, and farmers who produce sake rice also have surplus sake rice, especially the Tokyo Olympics scheduled to be held in 2020 has been postponed. It had a big impact. In response to such a situation, it will be implemented as the “Reiwa 2nd Year Rice Anniversary Supply and Demand Expansion Support Project” by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries for the purpose of supporting producers such as sake breweries and farmers.

▷ About IKE-SUN PARK
IKE-SUN PARK is a new disaster prevention park built in 2020 on the site of the former Mint. The traditional way of thinking about parks is that it is NG for private businesses to do business on the park grounds except for special events, but in recent years private businesses have been developing businesses such as cafes and product sales on the park grounds. As a result, the park will be lively and the value of the area will be improved, such as revitalizing the local community, so five food and beverage companies are currently participating. Farmers markets are held on weekends, making it a park where many people gather, not only as a place to relax in the area but also as the center of the local community.
