    Japanese barrels are of the type called yui barrels (barrels) and are made of wooden boards and bamboo rings that bind them. Around the 13th centuryJapan Song TradingIt is speculated that it was imported from China and later domestically produced.Sake,Soy sauce,misoSuch asbrewing-Used as a sales container.Those without a lid or that can be easily opened are also called "tubs" and are also called "tubs".Edo PeriodWas manufactured and sold by craftsmen as various daily necessities such as bath tubs and caskets.also,Kanbun-Enpo(1661/-1681/) Around that time, when performing a banquet or cherry-blossom viewing, there was a trick called a barrel doll, in which a barrel with a hat or haori was attached to make it look like a doll, and the barrel was held by hand to dance.GenrokuPeriod (1688/から1704/) It became popular around that time, and barrels for barrel dolls were also made.[1][4][5][6].

    During the Edo period, there were hundreds of sake brewers all over the country, and there were many barrel craftsmen who supported them, but as of 2013, there were nine barrel makers nationwide, and all of the barrel making. The number of craftsmen who can handle the process has decreased to about 9 people.[7].

    "Barrel" and "tub" are sometimes confused, but the difference does not depend on the size or purpose. The one with a lid called "mirror" is the "barrel", and the one without this is the "tub". Is defined.However, some barrels have a specially shaped lid, such as a tub.In the case of sake, cedar is used not only in barrels but also in tubs.

    The most suitable cedar wood for sake barrels is said to be "Yoshino cedar" produced in the Yoshino region of Nara prefecture, and the one with a white front side called "Koutsuki" is useful.Even with cedar wood, the instep uses the boundary between the "white thick" under the skin of the tree and the part called "redness" in the center. It is said that it is easy to add a rich flavor, but it is said that the cost of barrels with insteps is high because the amount that can be taken from one tree is limited.The instep barrel is used for sake, and the lean barrel is used for flavoring sake or for soy sauce.

    Currently, it is manufactured by Ya as a Western barrel made in Japan.

    In addition, shochu may also be packed in Western barrels and aged.
