I have a sake set, made on Shikoku a long time ago, with the cups in the form of a male and female kappa. I haven't had any hot sake in a long time (cold either, actually!).

Weird but very interesting creature. I love myths and legends and would love to find a book about Japanese ones. In English, of course :)
