Origin of Sake - 2

The following description is found in the Harimakoku Fudoki(播磨風土記).

When the dried rice offered to a shrine was soaked in water by chance, mold grew on it.

The god used it to make sake and held a banquet.

It is said the similar method as the current sake brewing using Koji.

From this, there is a theory that Niwata Shrine(庭田神社) in Hyogo Prefecture is the birthplace of Sake.
