This sake set is made in Japan, and comes with 1 bottle and 2 cups. The tanuki has been a part of Japanese folklore since ancient times and is said to be a mischievous character, able to disguise or transform himself at will. Famous legends tell the tale of a tanuki shape shifting into a monk, or an inanimate object like a tea kettle, to play tricks on passing woodsmen or hunters. Tanuki are said to love sake, so caricatures often depict the tanuki holding a flask of sake in one hand and a promissory note in the other.
