Guinomi style sake cup

Guinomi is a type of sake cup. It is usually made out of ceramic or earthenware and is generally larger in size. It is thought that “gui” refers to the sound of drinking such as gulp in english and “nomi” means to drink. So one could argue, this larger size style of cup is meant for gulping down sake! The texture of a guinomi is traditionally more rough with an organic texture.
