This Meiji-Era sake set includes two tokkuri (flasks) so you can enjoy two different types of sake, and five ochoko (sake cups) for drinking with loved ones. Handmade from tin—famous for its resistance to oxidation and corrosion, its antibacterial properties and heat conductivity—the perfect material to enjoy both chilled and hot sake. Engraved with dramatic silhouettes of pine trees and other traditional Japanese foliage. A perfect gift for the sake connoisseur!

Details & Care:


  • Date: 1892

  • Do not microwave, place in oven, or put over open fire as tin has a low melting point.
