Hinoki Rice Cup


Made of salvaged Japanese cypress in the traditional masu style, this rice cup highlights the beauty of measuring rice. Utilizing Japanese joinery techniques with a thick-walled design, it uses natural surface tension to prevent full cups of liquid from spilling over the sides. Measures 1 go*, a unit traditionally used to measure both rice and sake.

Cypress contains naturally occurring essential oils that are antibacterial, antifungal, and repel insects but smell lovely to us. Peacefully pour rice and enjoy the fragrant cypress aroma.

Note that when using to measure sake, the wood may impart a gentle flavor.

Materials: Hinoki cypress (Chamaecyparis obtusa).

Designed and made in Japan.

Measures 3.3/8" x 3.3/8" x H 2.1/4".

*1 go is equal to ~3/4 cup.
