Fully charged with sensibility at a brewery that spins time!
Kanagawa gallery walk
Shimoto Yamamoto (Galerie Watts)
When asked, "Do you like drinking?" There was a place.
Its name is "okeba". The okeba is a tub, which represents a workshop for repairing and manufacturing sake barrels and tools.
Gallery Sanpo hasn't become a brewery tour since this time (laughs).
This is a gallery shop introduced by "okeba" in the corner of "Kumazawa Sake Brewery", which is the only brewery founded in 1905 and remains in Shonan.
At the entrance, there are old sake bottles lined up as if to welcome visitors. After all it is only brewery. Open the sliding door with its elegant appearance, and enter while being excited.
In the space immediately after entering, there was an exhibition of ceramics by Asako Okamura and Yutaro who taught me about okeba. Hiratsuka is a local artist, and two of them are familiar artists who hold it every year. Every month, special exhibitions by artists of various genres are held in this space.

Asako-san's work, “I prefer to express my creations on porcelain plates rather than making vessels,” feels like drawing a scene that captures everyday life.
On the other hand, Mr. Yutaro makes a wide range of pottery, from playful taste to orthodox school. In addition to pottery activities, Mr. Yutaro serves as the executive committee chair of the popular event "Oiso Utsuwa no Hi" in Kanagawa Prefecture, and together with fellow local potters Hiroyuki Tomita, he creates a place where vessels and people meet. I will. What a 9th time this year! It will be held around the end of October.
Asako Okamura (left), who has been with okeba for a long time, and Wakako Muraishi, the store manager, are like sisters.
The shelves near the ceiling were filled with tools that finished the role of sake brewing, leaving behind the remnants.
Rare old tools and cute and nostalgic items are lined up by the store manager Wakako Muraishi. He likes old tools and bought and wholesaled at the shop name "Mononomeya", so he is said to have a relationship with okeba and was entrusted with the store manager.
It was discovered during the discussion that Mr. Muraishi was a founding member of "Tsukiyama" introduced last time. Apparently, he is an indispensable person to bring excitement to the Shonan area.
“Modern writers have thought of the creator,The ingredients are filled with the thoughts of the users of each generation, and I feel that both have the "richness of the heart that is essential to our lives," says Muraishi.
Certainly, every line in this historic space has its own wavelength, and we talk about it.
There is a picture book and old book corner on the 2nd floor, and there is also a valuable picture book that the owner of okeba himself collected while reading while reading. There are many fascinating books that touch the culture so that you will not be exhausted as if you pick up one book and chain it one after another. If you carelessly, it seems that it will be a few hours just here.
“I'm introducing you to a wide variety of genres, so I hope that you can enjoy your life by enjoying things that you feel sympathy while walking around slowly,” says Muraishi.
By the way, on the site where okeba is located, trattorias and cafes run by Kumazawa Sake Brewery and bakeries utilizing brewer's yeast gather like a small village. The entrance covered with big trees is like Alice in Wonderland or the story of Narnia, as if you were lost in another world.
Kumazawa Sake Brewery's "Shonan Beer" is famous, but local farm beer using fruits from local farmers is also popular. Lucky thingYou can order "Kataura Lemon Ale" which has just been released. Then only one cup (laughs).
Homemade sausages with a juicy and deep flavor, the perfect combination of refreshing lemon beer!
It's easy to see that many customers take a short break with delicious food and sake unique to the brewery, then return to okeba and have a good time.
It is reliable that the sake brewing place that has continued for more than 150 years further fosters local culture, and as you imagine the richness of the spirit that will continue for the next 100 years, you will feel a romantic feeling Had a beer in hand.
