Guinomi - Sake Cup
We have collected wonderful Guinomi sake cups from all over Japan that will make your blissful time of savoring your favorite sake even richer.
Usually the size of Guinomi is slightly smaller than teacups, so it is a larger cup for sake. It is common that people pour sake directly from the bottle into the Guinomi instead of using a Carafe. Originally, Guinomi was a tableware used to hold delicacies during Japanese tea ceremonies. After eating the delicacies, people began to pour sake into it and drink it, which is believed to be the beginning of the Ginomi. Hence, Guinomi has a history of growing up with the tea culture.
It incorporated the aesthetic sense of "Wabi-Sabi" and evolved into a tool for enjoying sake, rather than simply for drinking it.
