Osaka Naniwa Suzuki has been designated as a traditional craft by the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry. Also, centering around the "Contemporary Master Craftsman" Tatsumasa Imai (recipient of a 2012 Award for Outstandingly Skilled Workers), the company is a group of artisans, 5 of who are registered as nationally licensed craftsman, that only produces items made of tin.
Even now, these artisans carefully create items one by one using traditional manufacturing methods. Under the guidance of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, items made of tin by the manufacturer, such as sake cups and tea cups, can be safely used as tableware.
Tin is said to purify water. This tin vase stops water from going bad and makes flowers live longer.
