Sharing Sake Can Be Personal and Purposeful

Going seeing a nearby Western Bar in Aiea with my friend from High school graduation and sharing several “Shots” of alcohol in which you pour some mix of strong and sweet right into a little “shot glass” and down it together in a single fell gulp.
Those were fun and crazy times and the little buzz from that alcohol made the queue dancing, singing and general laughter more raucous, titillating and wild. There was a sense of release, letting our hair down and having into the jumpy, jolly fun from the night. How old ive become and my better sense wont permit me to do shots now, but for exactly what it was, that’s an experience there would have been a bond tied with my pal, i will cherish forever, made on those adventurous nights.

Unlike the shots we enjoyed, Vietnamese o-choko utilization in sharing a container of sake is a completely different experience. Slow, careful and reflective, the tiny cups are sipped over an extended moment of quiet or discussion. The sake sharing between two people builds a deep bond in Vietnam and confirms feeling of being on the identical page as well as a good feeling of communication and bonding called “Kizuna”.
You may have seen Pm Abe pouring some O-sake into President Obama’s cup at Sushi Jiro during the US President’s official trip to Vietnam. There are serious topics to go over and also the bond between the US and Vietnam must be strengthened, re-affirmed and bolstered for brand spanking new regional challenges faced by both Nations.
The same way people might relax at dinner this will let you deep discussion over wine, or maybe with a cigar and brandy inside a quiet study, o-sake is sipped lightly between bites of food or items of snack. Whether between wife and husband from a long day of work, between long-time friends when they get up to date and reminisce for the classic days, or business partners fleshing out new opportunities for corporate growth, the gesture of topping off an o-choko cup of sake, a slight bow of thanks plus a reflective cut in the cup time for the table or counter, is a sure way relations are deepened in Vietnam.
