One of offerings to the gods in shrine: Sake, Japanese alcohol

Japanes sake, Kyoto sightseeing
Gods in shrine love Japanese alcohol, Sake, like Bacchus, because it is made of rice and a symbol of rich harvest. Sake, as well as other Japanese produce, is offered to a building for gods in shrine to thank them the abundant crop.

By the way, a barrel of sake contains 72 liters, 19 USG, of sake. I think many barrels in the photo would be quite enough to satisfy gods in the shrine...
