The name of this sake means “only for the glasses” and this bottle is a special release to celebrate National Sake Day, October 1st. This day also happens to be called the Glasses Day, due to the date in numbers (I0-0I), resembling the face of someone wearing glasses--and as it happens, all the brewers in Hagino wear them!
