The work of conveying the tradition of sake to the world is full of new discoveries every day
My job is introducing sake to people overseas. Specifically, it includes customer services, such as sales and tasting, and tours of the sake brewery.
I also conduct public relations activities on SNS as I’m in charge of digital marketing. Many non-Japanese customers are interested in sake but have no knowledge or are not used to it. It’s a lot of fun to introduce the tradition of sake brewing to such customers.
Although the world of sake is deep and can often be difficult, every time I finish my work, I always feel, “I’m so glad I’m doing this work.” It’s my greatest pleasure to have customers say that they like sake. That is why during the sake brewery tour, I study a lot in advance so that I can answer any kind of questions.
In my work, I respect our customers and try to respond politely with a smile.
Working with colleagues at work has made me more aware of its importance. Through this work, I have gained a valuable experience that I couldn’t have experienced in my home country, Italy.
