Publisher: Great Big Story (CNN/Turner)
This was a story that I pitched and filmed for CNN's Great Big Story while in Japan. The piece was edited in NYC by the Great Big Story team.
“For more than 850 years, the Sudo family has been making sake in Obara, Japan. Their sake distillery is the oldest in the country. After the 2011 earthquake and nuclear meltdown, they feared the water in their ancient wells had been poisoned, and they would have to close. Luckily, the water was deemed safe, and today they carry on their time-honored tradition.”
