A flat sake cup featuring an outward curving mouth is known as “sorisakazuki.” It’s not a purely aesthetic choice as this also allows sake to flow smoothly and disperse over the palate, and although this one doesn’t curve outward much, the intent is there. Within the cup lies a subtle white spiral that provides just a touch of mystery waiting to be uncovered sip by sip.

Tactile qualities will gently guide your sake, each of them with unique shapes, body, weight and materials. Be sure to choose with all your senses.
