It was great to meet lots of new people at the Japan Matsuri Corporate Event At Government House in Perth. I loved being the Corporate MC and the "Kagami-biraki" ceremony (pictured).
Kagami-biraki is a ceremony performed at celebratory events in which the lid of the sake barrel is broken open by a wooden mallet and the sake is served to everyone present.
Kagami refers to the lid of the sake barrel and biraki means "to open" so kagami-biraki literally means "opening the lid."
Because of the lid's round shape, the kagami is a symbol of harmony. The kagami-biraki, therefore, represents an opening to harmony and good fortune.
