Since chopsticks are used in pairs, they have been thought of as a symbol of a husband and wife helping and supporting each other. Giving chopsticks as a gift also means praying for "wealth" and "health" so one does not have to worry about eating. In addition, they have a metaphor for "bridge," meaning a bridge that deepens the bond between husband and wife and a bridge to happiness.
This set of Japanese reusable chopsticks features Mt. Fuji, drawn in shimmering fine lame at the top. The design on the diagonal cross-section is unique and hard to find anywhere else. Its timeless design is suitable for long-term use, daily use, or entertaining guests.

After a long busy day, there's nothing like a leisurely time for a cup of tea with your partner. This Bizen Ware teacup set will create a more blessed time. It has a pattern called "Hidasuki." The coarse texture, exquisite colors and patterns produced by the kiln's flames is a remarkable example of Bizen Ware, "the art of clay and fire."
It can be used not only for green tea but also as a cup for a variety of drinks. It is said that the rough surface in Bizen Ware removes the bitterness from coffee, resulting in a mellow taste. Patterns are created by the nature of the clay, the way it is placed into the kiln, changes in kiln temperature, and the ash and charcoal used during firing. Because they are handmade, the more you use them, the more they will become attractive.
It would be a good idea for partners to use matching cups to spend a cozy time together at home. You can enjoy sipping tea with this Bizen Ware cup for a breathing time.

Sake is generally drunk straight without adding water or ice. If you pour a large glass full of sake and drink it at a fast tempo, you will quickly become intoxicated. Therefore, a sake cup is suitable for enjoying sake while savoring it slowly and a little at a time.
Having a little bit of sake while enjoying the food and conversation with someone special will be a luxurious time at home.
This set comes with two sake cups and a carafe of Kutani Ware. As for Japanese sake gift sets, this is another recommendation with hand-painted plum flowers on the warm touched stoneware.
