Admiring Japan's famous mountain.
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. 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.
Usually other metals are added to tin to make it stronger, but Nousaku's tin isn't mixed with anything to fully bring out its characteristics.
This "Mt. Fuji" guinomi accurately reproduces the Osawa-kuzure valley taken from satellite photographs etc. Please enjoy delicious sake while viewing Mt. Fuji in the inside bottom as well.
