This small red and black kogo was selected for use in chabako temae (outdoor tea procedures). The chabako kogo is used exclusively for the tsuki (moon) chabako, a unique tea procedure which is performed in the autumn. The style and color of this kogo are reminiscent of a famous container for thin tea (natsume) owned by the fifth generation Urasenke Grand Master, Fukyusai Joso, which fits a small drawer in his paulownia tea utensil box (chabako).
