Japanese sake pitchers come in several forms, with the most common being “tokkuri” and “katakuchi.” Tokkuri are sake pitchers with narrowed necks, while katakuchi are open-mouthed sake pitchers. BECOS features a diverse collection of sake pitchers in all shapes and sizes to give your sake the treatment it deserves.

BECOS offers a wide variety of beautiful Japanese wrapping options to elegantly express your gratitude, congratulations, or other sentiment to the recipient.In addition to washi paper wrapping, we also offer furoshiki wrapping which is a uniquely Japanese wrapping method that utilizes a traditional wrapping cloth. While paper wrapping is often thrown away, furoshiki are useful items that can be reused as an eco-bag, scarf, or to wrap important belongings, making it a very popular wrapping method.In addition to wrapping, we also offer the option to send a typed or handwritten note with your gift to add an even more personal touch. If you are sending a gift to someone who lives far away, please don’t hesitate to use our message service
At BECOS, our concierges are well versed in etiquette and gift selection. There are many factors to consider when choosing a gift, including not only what to give, but also the budget, when to give it, and etiquette (especially if giving a gift to a Japanese acquaintance). Even if you just need a quick suggestion for the best item to give someone, our concierge service is ready to help.
Japanese sake pitchers are filled with sake and served together with sake cups for a proper sake drinking experience. For warm sake, tokkuri sake pitchers made from pottery are the most popular choice, as they can be placed directly into hot water to warm the sake inside.
Clean your sake pitchers with a soft brush or sponge and soap and water.
