In Japan, sake has been around for centuries. If you've bought sake, it's time to enjoy the fruits of your efforts with a glass of sake. However, it takes a little more effort to get the most from sake. Crafted with creative craftsmanship, ochoko (sake cup) and tokuri (small sake bottle) come in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors and materials, allowing you to express your individuality . For cold sake, small ochokos made of porcelain, metal or glass are recommended. Sake is all about fun. So, if you have your own way of drinking, feel free to try it! However, for those who are new to sake, it is recommended to drink it slowly, little by little, while feeling the taste and aroma. Sake can be drunk as is, so do not mix it with alcohol or anything else! It is important to provide food and water together, so prepare your otsumami and drink water. Sake is famous for a hangover the next day, so don't drink too much!
