Tokyo By Night at The Sam Houston Hotel
Tokyo By Night at The Sam Houston Hotel was a VIP dinner to thank customers/clients for their support over the years. Being a Tokyo based company, the company’s leaders brought Tokyo to Houston. With a projection of the Tokyo skyline, accents of green for good fortune with a foundation of black and silver linen, the room was transformed into an inviting space of wealth and prosperity.
Part of the event’s festivities included kagami-biraki, a ceremony performed at celebratory events in which the lid of the sake barrel is broken open by a wooden mallet and the sake is served to everyone present. Kagami refers to the lid of the sake barrel and biraki means “to open” so kagami-biraki literally means “opening the lid.” Because of the lid’s round shape, the kagami is a symbol of harmony. The kagami-biraki, therefore, represents an opening to harmony and good fortune.
Cheers to the next and beyond!
