Tin Sake Vessel “Katakuchi”– Nousaku
translation missing: ja.products.notify_form.title
This is a sake vessel “Katakuchi” made from 100% tin.
Since ancient times, tin has been used as a metal for sake and tea utensils, as it is said that "water in a tin vessel will not spoil" and that "sake tastes milder because the tin removes impurities”.
The simple, not-too-large katakuchi also makes it a good choice for dressing containers and tableware.
Each piece is handmade, hand casted and hand finished by techniques passed down over 400 years.
Dimensions: H60 W139 D87mm

The Voyapon website has existed since 2015, when our founders envisioned the idea of bringing "off-the-beaten-path" Japan to the English, French, Spanish, and German-speaking world. Since then, our writers have created more than 3,000 articles shedding light on parts of Japan few overseas visitors have ever had a chance to visit. We would like to believe that our hard work has helped connect the lesser-traveled parts of Japan with the rest of the world.
