A tin cup for daily use.
Produced using 100% tin based on skills developed from the processing techniques of "casting", a traditional industry of Takaoka, Toyama Prefecture. Tin has a high ion efficiency and makes drinks taste milder by purifying water.
It has been traditionally said "water won't go bad if it's in a tin bowl" or "tin can get rid of an unpleasant flavor" and so has been used for sake cups and teacups.
This item is a 100% tin cup which is a little smaller than the beer cup. Approx. 130cc. As it' small, you can use it not only for juice or alcohol but also for brushing your teeth or drinking water.
It's well known that a tin flower vase keeps flowers fresh for a long time with its anti-bacterial effect. Also recommended using as a vase.
