Japanese people sometimes refer to turtle-neck sweaters as tokkuri because of the narrow silhouette around the neck.
Large-sized tokkuri bottles were used to store and carry sake, soy sauce or vinegar. It was not until the Edo era that smaller sizes for ichi-go (180ml) or ni-go (360ml) were made for pouring sake.
Tokkuris containing sake are often placed directly into boiling water to make kan-zake (hot sake). Porcelain tokkuris are better suited to be heated, while glass tokurris are best for serving cold sake.
