Consider this...

If you ask brewers how much sake they produce, they use a unit called "Koku". They will say, "We make 1000 koku" for example. So, how much is 1 Koku? To answer this, let's start with the smallest unit used to measure the volume of sake: 1 Shaku (18ml/~0.6 oz). 1 Shaku x 10 = 1 Gou (180ml/~6 oz.); 1 Gou x 10 = 1 Shou (1800ml--a.k.a the magnum size bottle/~60 oz.); 1 Sho x 10 = 1 To (18L/~600 oz.-imagine 2 cases of wine); 1 To x 10 = 1 Koku (180L/~6,000 oz-imagine 20 cases of wine). Ok, if you hear a brewery producing 1000 koku, you can imagine 20,000 cases (12bottle/case) of sake!
