Kikichoko (aka Janome Ochoko) with the blue circles at the bottom of the cup is one of  the most-known ochoko cups. It’s the one used for Sake tasting by Sake sommeliers.

Kikichoko tasting cup is known to be made from porcelain, but now here comes the glass version!

There are two types – FLAVOR type and AROMA type. This pair set is to compare how Sake tastes differently in two different glasses.

Kikichoko Tasting Sake Glass FLAVOR comes in a trumpet shape. This shape allows only a narrow stream of Sake to come into your mouth, touching the tip of your tongue first. It enables you to enjoy the Sake’s mildness, sweetness and the balance in sensitive flavor. Especially recommended for Sake beginners.

The blue circles at the bottom is called Janome. Janome literally means ‘Snake eye’. It’s called Janome because the two blue circles inside the cup look like a snake’s eye. These circles are used for checking the quality of Sake.

The white parts are for checking the ‘transparency’ of Sake, while the blue circles are for the gloss of Sake.

The name, Kikichoko stems from two words – ‘Kiki’ (tasting) and ‘choko‘ (Ochoko /Sake cup). Therefore, the name literally means ‘Sake tasting cup’!
