A FEW WORDS : Most of the Sake Breweries in Japan are family-run business so the spouses of company presidents always do their best to support their husbands.
But in our family, my husband understood how important it was to give me the opportunity to establish my own career and independence and every since we got married, he has supported my work in the academic field as university lecturer. My research field was family and local community from a gender perspective. I was engaged in comparative research in many different Asian countries for about 20 years. After retirement, I began supporting my husband’s business. Now I enjoy being active in a totally new field, which is our family business as well as Japanese traditional products.
