Hinoki Rice Cup
Made of salvaged Japanese cypress in the traditional masu style, this rice cup highlights the beauty of measuring rice. Thick-walled design uses 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 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 imparts 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.
