Beku Hai Sake Drinking Game Cups


Bekuhai is a traditional Enkai game (drinking game) from Kochi in which players spin a top and drink from the cup indicated by the upward facing side of the top as it lands. Each of the cups represents a figure from Japanese folklore: the Okame (funny-faced woman), the Hyottoko (funny-faced man) and the Tengu (Japanese goblin) and hold increasing quantity of sake as well as being either difficult to hold or to set down. The Okame is the safest cup to land on and holds a small quantity of sake and may be put down on the table without spilling. The Hyottoko holds more sake and has a hole at the mouth which must be held closed with a finger or else it will leak and so may not be placed down. The Tengu holds the most sake and due to its long nose may not be set down and gets the player drunk the fastest. There is a song that is often sung while the top is spun: the song roughly translates to The drunk god is an honest god, and he's stumbling towards the liquor.
