He he, maybe they do it for their wives or girlfriends so there is something "pretty" in their collection.

Say what you want but I like them and plan to get more in the future. These cups and bottles are actually parallels to German Reservist Beer Steins in that they are rememberances of a soldiers service time. Also, nearly all date from the late 1930's all the way back to the 1890's. Many of my cups and bottles are for units that served in China, Manchuria and Korea.

If you watch the movie Letters From Iwo Jima, General Kuribiashi has a sake bottle exactly like one of mine sitting next to him on the table when he is drinking with the cavalry officer. Just a movie, but these things were used for real by the Japanese soldiers.

You know I just like to pick on the cup collectors because it's fun. ;) What I like to add to my collection as "filler" are things like Japanese coins, paper money, cigarettes, etc. Just can't get into the girley looking things. Wink wink!

I don't know Rob dolls are pretty Gay. I can appreciate the fact that you are not trying to rationalize it as an "action figure". I will let you slide though on the basis that it is a Harley.

I see there are other "sissies" (Rob's term of me) like me that dig these cups also. I'm telling you non-believers, get a cup and the next thing you know you have a shelf full of them. I thought they were queer too, until I picked one up just because it was named to a Japanese unit that was destroyed in the area of the Philippines my wife is from. I had planned to "get just one", then before you know it, I had to "get just one" that was Artillery, then one that was Signals, then one that was Naval, then one that looked like a helmet, then a bottle, then one that had a machine gun on it, then next thing you know I got bunches of them. If you check some of the websites that sell these things, you will see some pretty neat looking cups with some very detailed machine gun, cannons, planes, trucks, trains, flags, bayonets, shin-guntos, you name it on them. These things represent all the things we collect. But don't pay no mind to me, im a "sissy." :p

Yes I guess they are sissy, but I was once tempted to buy a little porcelain guy with a dog but then people would think I had "just come out of the closet." :))

I drink my sake out of a cup, about 8oz. Don't need no little saucer, besides, I'd spill it everywhere except into my mouth!

I wouldn't know sake if it bit me on the bum. I don't drink too much or too often though. Allows me more money to waste, I mean spend, on this addictive Japanese militaria hobby of mine.

By the way, a decent Sake cup can be had for about 10-20 bucks.
