Mini Kagami-Biraki Sake Cask Great Wave off Kanagawa

Hokusai-themed traditional celebration drinking set

There is a deep connection between sake (Japan's national drink) and Shintoism (its indigenous religion), and this is reflected in the rice-based alcoholic beverage used at all kinds of joyous occasions, from weddings to festivals and shop openings. On many of these occasions, the sake comes in a traditional wooden cask called a taru, which is opened by breaking its lid with a wooden mallet, and then the sake inside is served using a dipper called a hisaku. All these you can find in the Mini Kagami-Biraki Sake Cask Great Wave off Kanagawa, meaning you can hold your own private cask breaking ceremonies!

The Mini Kagami-Biraki Sake Cask Great Wave off Kanagawa is, as the name suggests, smaller than a regular taru: this one is just 17.5 x 18 cm (6.9 x 7") and has a capacity of 720 ml (24.3 fl oz), which is about the same as a regular sake bottle. But you don't need to fill it with sake: the bucket inside it can be filled with anything from candy and treats to even small toys (if you want to use it at a children's party). And it is safe for kids, because the lid doesn't actually break: when you hit it, the lid splits into two magnetic pieces that you can put together again afterwards. The cask features a picture of a wave and Mount Fuji based on the famous Hokusai print and in the tiled style that is found on the walls of Japanese public baths!
