 One of Japan Unique Gifts' most unique gifts is this wooden sake decanter. Even in Japan, you would have a difficult time trying to find and purchase one -- yet it's an item that's sure to bring infinite pleasure to its lucky owner. Created specifically for holding Japanese sake, this amazingly beautiful yet practical decanter adds to the drinking experience in a way not possible with a glass or ceramic decanter. Its fine-quality hinoki cypress wood not only adds an indescribably pleasant fragrance when pouring sake into a cup or glass, it actually makes the taste of the sake milder. Like the wooden sake cup (masu) also offered through this website, this handcrafted wooden decanter is constructed using no nails or glue. Its amazingly precise interlocking pieces ensure complete water-tightness; they also set the authentic item on offer here apart from lesser imitations that might look similar but are far inferior in construction. The decanter comes with an attractively designed, perfectly fitting lid. Whether selected as a gift for a favorite friend who loves sake, or as the perfect gift to give yourself, this altogether unique wooden decanter will quickly become the center of attention whenever the sake starts to flow.
