Kikichoko (aka Janome Ochoko) is probably the most-known ochoko cup. Why? Because it’s the one used for Sake tasting by Sake sommeliers.

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’!

We have prepared Kikichoko Cups in various sizes. Pick your favorite size!
