RT2014 Social program
SAKE MASUYou will find a wooden box in a conference bag. It is called “SAKE MASU”, which means measuring cup for Sake in the past. Now, we use this not for measuring Sake but for drinking Sake. Japanese cypress is used for Sake Masu. It smells nice. It is just for drinking or measuring, it is hard to keep liquid long time. New one is good to have liquid, however, after using several times, leakage may happen. Sake Masu should be good also for as a Box.
