Maction Planet x Shochu.Pro Hanami 2017: The Movie

Maction Planet x Shochu.Pro Hanami 2017: The Movie

On Sunday 2 April 2017, Maction Planet and Shochu.Pro held a Cherry Blossom party, a hanami, in Yoyogi Park.

The event was a sell-out success. We had guests from all over the world enjoying draft craft beer from Baird Beer and a selection of 10 different shochus curated by shochu expert Christopher Pellegrini. The weather could not have have been better, and the Cherry Blossom canopy was something out of a dream. It was truly epic.

However, very little emerged about what exactly happened on the day. We didn’t share any photos or video of the event. Some of our attendees wrote reviews of the event on TripAdvisor, which you can check out here, here, here, here, here, here and here. Other than that, what happened on hanami stayed on hanami… until now!

Finally all can be revealed. Get yourself in the mood for Sakura season with ‘Maction Planet x Shochu.Pro Hanami 2017:The Movie’.


For those that missed out last year, and for all those who came and immediately demanded more, Maction Planet and Shochu.Pro are back in 2018 with an even bigger and better Hanami.  The party will be once again held in Yoyogi Park, one of Tokyo’s most famous Cherry Blossom viewing spots, on Saturday 31 March 2018 from 12:00. Tickets to the event will include the following

  • Unlimited all-you-can-drink shochu from a selection curated by Christopher Pellegrini.
  • 4 x 300ml draft craft beers from Baird Beer, one of Japan’s foremost Craft Beer Breweries
  • Further craft beers will be available at ¥700 per bottle.
  • Entry into a raffle to win a ‘Floating Sakura’ Maction Planet T-shirt, designed by superstar artist Livio Ramondelli

More details can be found here and tickets are on sale at until 26th March 09:00 JST.
