"The Four Seasons" Playing in Spring
Fukusuke and Otafuku drink sake by taking 3 sips from 3 cups during their wedding ceremony. The newlyweds drink 3 cups of sacred sake in front of the gods and exchange their vows. From the writings, this piece is probably a gift to celebrate the beginning of 7 happy years of the way of yin and yan.
