July 21,2008
Korea’s imports of Japanese rice wine jumped nearly 46 percent in the first half of this year amid the high popularity of Japanese-style restaurants among young Koreans, government data showed yesterday.

Korea imported 752 tons of Japanese rice wine, known as sake, in the January-June period, up 46.1 percent from the same period a year earlier, according to data from the Korea Customs Service.

The value of the imports came to $2.59 million, up 73.8 percent from a year earlier. Imports of Japanese rice wine amounted to 1,275 tons last year, up from 851 tons in 2006.
