Experience the Essence of Japan: House of Suntory's Pop-Up Unveils Three Pillars of Suntory Craftsmanship.

This cherry blossom season, House of Suntory warmly extends an invitation to immerse yourself in a delightful sensory journey, capturing the essence of Japanese culture. Embrace the beauty of the season as we offer South Africans a unique opportunity to revel in the splendour of cherry blossoms right here in our own locale. Join us in celebrating this cultural phenomenon through our exclusive pop-up tasting installation. 

House of Suntory

The pop-up, rooted in the three pillars of Suntory – WA (being in harmony with Japanese nature), Omotenashi (experiences of Japanese hospitality and culture) and Monozukuri (Japanese craftsmanship), creates an immersive experience where visitors physically and digitally step into the essence of Brand Japan.

In collaboration with like-minded partners, the pop-up amplifies the Brand Japan narrative, adding authenticity and credibility.
