Ms. Chieko Fujita was born in Gunma Prefecture, Japan. She is a writer and a journalist, writing mainly about the sake culture of Japan. She has visited many local sake breweries all over Japan and one of her goals is to bring this culture to the public. Ms. Fujita also organizes the “Fermentation Link”, which brings together sake brewers, the producers of Japanese traditional fermented seasonings (such as miso and shoyu), chefs, and consumers through various workshops and networking activities.

Her articles have appeared in many magazines, and she is the author of numerous books, including Bishu no Sekkei (“Designing Excellent Sake,” published by Magazine House), Japan’s Daiginjo 100 (published by Shinchosha), Touji toiu shigoto (“The Job Called Sake Brewer,” published by Shinchosha) and Gokujo no chomiryo wo motomete (“In Search of Ultimate Seasonings,” published by Bungeishunju).
