“Nara Week in Xi’an”Experience the Essence of Nara, sister city of Xi’an

2021 marks the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the relationship between Shaanxi Province and Nara Prefecture, Japan. In order to promote economic exchange between the two places in the future, the Japan External Trade Organization will hold “Nara Week in Xi’an” at the Japanese restaurant “Cang Zhuo” located in Qujiang for two weeks in March, from Saturday, March 6th to Friday, March 19th.

During the event, the main industrial products of Nara Prefecture will be on display at the venue, such as Nara’s scientifically-designed brushes that rely on traditional technologies to achieve smooth penmanship; various color pigments with distinct color development characteristics; thermoses and lunch boxes that are popular amongst Chinese tourists; and superior types of daily necessities, such as manufactured glass kettles. All of these products can be purchased via cross-border e-commerce.

In addition, 19 sake breweries from Nara Prefecture will also present their carefully brewed Junmai Sake and Junmai Ginshu, brought especially to the venue for the exhibition, including sake products never before sold in China. This event will feature a variety of unique Nara specialty sake products, such as sake brewed 500 years ago in the birthplace of sake in Nara, which is used in Japan’s oldest sacred shrine to the sake god; sake brewed from the yeast isolated from the Japanese lily; and rare sake brands that are rarely produced in Nara and are difficult to obtain even in Japan. Visitors are welcome to come to the venue and taste real delicious sake.
