Man is not the only one working in a brewery.
Microbes also live in the brewery.
They have been there for a long time.
They are quiet but surrounds us warmly and happily.
Brewery workers, master brewer and microbes.
Sake brewing cannot exist without all three.
Stand in the brewery and listen.
Sounds of rice malt bubbling in the barrel prepared just yesterday.
Water runs and fire crackles. Steam rises gently infused with the sweet smell of rice.
Brewery workers all focus to judge the right moment.
All the eight million gods breathe in unison.
With the power of gods the rice smiles with the steam and the light.
Heart to celebrate.
Heart to pray.
Heart filled with a burst of power.
