It is so difficult to select the MVP of this month because there has been very few contributions of articles with photos from Sorachi sub-prefectural area and other part of Japan but just few from the United States have been contributed to this blog site so far.
As I mentioned before, Japanese sake "ARABASHIRI" brewed up by Kobayashi Brewery is the present to the MVP of this month.
At this moment, nobody is entitled to this present and it is very difficult to send this bottle to the United States.
If anybody could give me a comment on what kind of item should be selected as a present to the MVP of April, I would appreciate it so much !

Again, the articles with photos of Hokkaido will be appreciated so much. Email address is
