The other day, Mr. Takahiro Nagashima of Nagashima Saketen, Shizuoka City gave me an interesting present:
A sake bottle bag by Isojiman, Yaizu City, when they were called Saketomo Teraoka Brewery.
As tehy changed their corporate name to Isojiman Brewery in 1956, this bag is at least 50 years old!
Mr. Nagashima actually told me with a straight face that I could sell it at a collector’ auction (fat Chance!)!
Contrary to modern synthetic bags, it is made of real thick cloth and rope!
