 The Miss Sake program exists to select a Cultural Ambassador to share a love and understanding of sake, Japanese cuisine and the charm of Japanese culture both inside and outside of Japan.

The program originated in Japan in 2013 and has subsequently expanded into other countries with the primary mission to promote cultural understanding and world community through the appreciation of sake.

In Japan the program has the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, the National Tax Agency and the Japan Sake Brewery Association.

The three main tenants of the program are:

  1. Promotion and education of the enjoyment of sake.
  2. Promotion of Japanese cuisine, regional food and agriculture.
  3. Promotion of Japanese culture, art and craftsmanship.

We are proud to announce the launch of the Miss Sake program in Australia.

We seek an articulate, charismatic individual who has a genuine interest in sake, Japanese cuisine and the culture of Japan. The successful candidate will be a spokesperson at many cultural events and will engage the community to share your passion for Japan.

Miss Sake Australia will be flown to Japan in March 2019 to attend the Miss Sake Japan inauguration ceremony.

This is a unique opportunity for an individual to contribute to cultural appreciation and understanding between Australia, Japan and beyond. It also aims to empower women in an industry that was historically male only. The Miss Sake Organisation supports and encourages the increasing number of women in Japan that are becoming Master Brewers and Brewery Presidents where once this was not the case.

We look forward to receiving your application to become Miss Sake Australia 2019.
