A sake cup with a bamboo motif that goes great with Japanese dishes.
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 sake set is produced by Kimio Nonaga from a long-established Japanese restaurant, "Nihonbashi Yukari".
Each item is made of carefully-chosen tin (100%) and hammer-finished by Kenji Mizumaki, a craftsman from Takaoka, Toyama Prefecture. As it has a high thermal conductivity, you can easily make delicious cold sake just by putting it in the fridge. You can also enjoy lukewarm sake.
