Authentic sake drinking.

Wood-burned with the prosperous medetai sea bream imprint (a pun on the Japanese word for joy and prosperity), this masu cup offers a celebratory helping of good fortune, whether it's used to drink sake or store your trinkets.

Masu were standard sake drinking vessels that originated in the Edo shogunate of the 1600s. Nowadays small ceramic or glass cups tend to be used day-to-day, with masu generally being utilised during special occasions and ceremonies. Wooden masu cups such as this are considered a great luxury and a symbol of good luck.
