Ceremonial Sake Barrel & Cups
Kagami-biraki is a ceremony performed at celebratory events in which the lid of the sake barrel is broken open by a wooden mallet and the sake is served to everyone present. Kagami refers to the lid of the sake barrel and biraki means “to open” so kagami-biraki literally means “opening the lid.” Because of the lid's round shape, the kagami is a symbol of harmony. The kagami-biraki, therefore, represents an opening to harmony and good fortune.
This set includes two wooden sake masu, the wooden boxes traditionally used to drink sake, and a ladle. Each barrel is a different, unique color.
