Sake bottles hold promises. Good times. Convivial company; or, flying solo thank you very much. A pleasant buzz. Personally sake ranks right down there with retsina, or Pinot Grigio.
The most beautiful sake holder I ever saw was at Roan Kikunoi in Kyoto. A thick bamboo segment, hollowed then graduated and smoothed to a pouring lip.
