Ika tokkuri, the dried squid decanter

Check out this decanter and cup made from dried squid. We can use them to consume warm sake. One we finish the sake, we can eat the moistened squid.

Here is another squid dish from up in Hokkaido. This is called ikameshi. Ika is the Japanese word for squid. Squid is stuffed with rice and then cooked.
