commentary: おちょこ (sake cup)

Hiroi Michiaki: And this is– ah, this is “sake cup.” When it’s raining during a typhoon, on days when the wind is strong, your umbrella goes FWOOOSH and goes like this [inside out]. And [this figure] is doing their best to hold on.

Janell Landis: I received that eight years ago.

Hiroi: Yeah. If you spin this it clatters about and looks like they’re struggling [to hold on].
