The characters “Nonoguchi Shuten (Nonoguchi Sake Shop)” appear on this sake bottle. Customers would purchase individual bottles of sake with the name of the shop written on the bottle and bring the bottle back for refills. This type of sake bottles with the shop or location name written on them were commonly known as kayoi tokkuri (commuter sake bottles) because they were brought back and forth between sake shops and homes. They were mass produced from the late Edo period up to around the 30s of the Showa period.
