Japanese name (also Choko) for the small cups from which the sake in all temperature ranges (cold to warm) is drunk. These are made of stoneware, ceramics, porcelain or wood in a variety of forms and designs. The handmade ochoko are of great artistic value. These drinking vessels ideally support the Japanese culture of o-shaku. You give each other when the cup is empty. And because an ochoko gets empty relatively quickly, o-shaku can be fully lived. The sake is also from the traditional Masu (Wooden cube) or Sakazuki (Drinking bowl) drunk (the boundaries between Ochoko and Sakazuki but are fluent and synonymously used). To serve or pour various vessels such as Chirori. Katakuchi or Tokkuri used. See also below wine vessels,
