Sake (rice wine)

Locally brewed brands of sake are praised for their dryness with smoothness in the throat and they go very well with local cuisine using fresh foodstuffs from the sea and mountains in Kochi. They do not adversely affect or disturb the taste buds, yet they help improve the quality and taste of foodstuffs. The smooth intake makes it possible for Kochi people to drink a lot of sake. The local culture of enjoying drinking has been nurtured in Kochi and there is a drinking party or banquet with a game called “bekuhai,” which is unique to Kochi. “Bekuhai” is a kind of sake cup. This is a simple party game in which people shake a dice-like object with images of strange-shaped cups. People at the party have to drink sake using the sake cup suggested by the dice spot. But the cup is not stable and has a hole in it. Therefore, one cannot put it on the table until it is emptied.
