A yakan is a kind of metal water pitcher (mizutsugi) used the same places as a katakuchi mizutsugi in the temae, except that one usually uses a yakan with tana which have four legs. Or where the shelves prevents pouring in to the mizusashi whitout moving it out of the tana.

During gozumi-temae, a yakan is used if there is no tana or a 4-legged tana.
