The Japanese masu cup is a simple wooden box. The wood is generally either made from hinoki (Japanese cypress) or sugi (Japanese cedar) and sometimes matsu (spruce). 

In the times of feudal Japan, sake was sold in Japanese masu which was more than a simple box, it was the standard measurement unit. The most commonly used size is the so-called Standard masuu that has an internal volume of 180ml. This was and still is the one that is most commoly used for drinking sake. For measuring big portions of rice, the so-called Extra-large masuu size was commonly used, which has the internal volume of 1800ml.

Japanese masu has kept it's popularity even in the modern times. It is used on many kind of traditional ceremonies, celebrations and even in many traditional Japanese restaurants. Sometimes it is used in itself in Japanese restaurants, and sometimes a glass is put in side the Japanese masu and the server will fill it to the rim so that the sake overflows into the masu an an act that symbolizes the famous Japanese hospitality.
