Ochoko is a popular vessel for sake. Originally used to serve food, it has been used as a sake container since the Edo period (1603-1867). The advantage of ochoko is that they are small in size, so you can drink a little at a time. It is a great way to enjoy sake in a freshly poured state. Ceramic sake cups are characterized by their smooth texture, which enhances the taste of sake.
It is an ideal gift for sake lovers.

What is Yoshidaya Style
The style originated from the Kutani-yaki kiln opened by Yoshida-ya, a wealthy merchant of the Daishoji clan. Reflecting the Bunka-Bunsei period of the Tokugawa Taihei era, it is characterized by a soft style of painting.
It strongly inherits the flow of the old Kutani style, in which flowers and birds, landscapes, small patterns, and flowers are painted using the three colors of blue, yellow, and purple.
