Otōri with Awamorì, オトーリ

Otōri (オトーリ) is how people drink Awamorì, the local drink distilled from rice, in Miyako.

People sit in circle. One person, the oya (親、おや、 master of ceremonies), makes a speech, fill his glass, drinks in a sip, then pours awamori for the neighboring person, who has to drink in a sip. And so on until everyone has drunk his cup. Then the oya moves counterclockwise around the circle, and the procedure is repeated.

As you can see people end up drinking a lot and this is probably the reason there are no centenarians men in Miyako.
