Sakazuki is a type of shallow, footed sake cup that is often used for ceremonial purposes. Traditionally, they are most often made from wood with a lacquer finish but can also be found made from metal. They often contain no more than a sip of two of sake. Because of their shallow depth, they require concentration and intent to hold and sip from, so they are ideal for ceremonial use. You often see sakazuki used at shinto shrines for ceremonies such as “san san ku do” wedding ritual.
