Description of Masu Cup, Yamaichi, Hinoki Wood
Masu cups have played an important part in Japanese traditions for over 1300 years. The small square cups made of Hinoki wood were originally used to measure rice and other food items.

There are two ways to enjoy sake in Masu; one is to pour sake directly into the Masu and the other is to put a glass inside the Masu.

There is a pouring style called “Spillover” which is a way of drinking by putting a glass in a Masu and pouring it until it overflows. It is one of the most common ways to serve sake you in Izakaya and traditional restaurants in Japan.
