These glasses are so delightful you'll want to use them again and again. The dancing cats derive from ukiyo-e paintings by Edo-period artist Utagawa Kuniyoshi. Available in two styles, they include a small wooden box, called a "masu," which is used for drinking sake "spillover" style. The masu here is branded with a cat design!

How to use

Drinking "spillover" style is easy! It's also "overflowing" with imagery---your cup runneth over, etc. They are often seen at weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and other joyful occasions.
  1. Sake is poured into the glass, overflowing into the masu (wooden box) below. (Remember not to serve yourself; sake is always poured for you.)
  2. Sip from a corner of the masu, holding it with both hands.
  3. Or, lean down and sip from the glass inside the masu, without lifting it from the table. When it becomes more manageable, you can pour the contents of one into the other, depending on your preference.
