mokkiri vol.45-1

When drinking at Izakaya (informal Japanese style bar) in Japan, sometimes sake is served in this style: server put a glass inside the Masu or sake saucer and pour until sake overflows from the glass. This serving style is called “Mokkiri” and it is said that the degree of overflowing shows the degree of the server’s generosity.

How would you drink this style of sake?

The most familiar style in sake country Akita is that sipping a bit of sake with kissing the brim. In order to spread this “kissing drinking style” throughout the world, we will continuously introduce the attractive “Mokkiri face” of beautiful Akita’s ladies to you.

This mokkiri beauty is Ms. Ryoka Kurujima who is called “Su” and a member of Akita wan-wan musume (the promotion group of Akita’s tourism).
“Since I became 20 years old which is drinkable age, I try to drink sake little by little. All of my family members are sake lovers and a couple days ago, they finished 1,800ml bottle of Takashimizu sake in a day! I want to drink a lot so that I won’t lose to them!” she said.
You don’t need to compete with them! Just please enjoy sake at your pace!
