Ochoko - Sake Cup
We have collected wonderful Ochoko sake cups from all over Japan that will make your blissful time of savoring your favorite sake even richer.
Ochoko is a relatively small sake cup. It usually has a larger capacity than a Sakazuki and can contains 2-3 sips. Ochoko was originally used as a small Kobachi bowl to hold Sunomono, etc., but it is said that it began to be used at sake parties in the middle of the Edo period.
People started drinking with Sakazuki, and then switched to Ochoko as the mood grew. There is no clear definition of the material or shape of Ochoko, and there are many different types. Most of the sake cups included in sake sets are classified as ochoko.
