The wooden sake cup offers natural warmth, woody scent, and smooth touch.
There are five common types of traditional Japanese sake cups and glasses: ochoko, guinomi, sakazuki, mokkiri, and kiriko.
Their small size makes them ideal for sipping and savouring the sake and encourage regular refills from your host, a key tenet of Japanese hospitality. The small rim size means you won’t get as much of the aroma as you might with a wider cup or glass, but they are a great way to share sake with friends.
The cedar wood is believed to impart a unique aroma and flavor to the sake, and the cups are often used for special occasions or ceremonies. The natural texture and pattern of the wood also make each cup unique and aesthetically pleasing. Cedar Guinomi Sake Cup is a popular choice among sake enthusiasts who appreciate the traditional craftsmanship and natural beauty of the cup.
