Hana no Keiji (The Flower Keiji)
A historical manga about a Sengoku Warlord named Furuta Oribe, who wavered between his insatiable ambition for success in his career and his aspiration to become a tea ceremony master. Between engaging in battles and holding tea ceremonies, Furuta plans to spread the taste of sake made in Fushimi around Japan through the sake vessels he makes. He claimed that Fushimi sake is “just as delicious as the ones from Itami”. Other scenes include Furuta, teaching how to drink sake properly. This work was also adapted into an anime.
