Boku Sansui Kutani Japanese Tea Set
This Japanese tea set features Satoyama, traditional Japanese landscape of woodland close to the village on the porcelain foundation in an ink painting style. Underneath the beautiful golden clouds, an old-fashioned Japanese house and a rich natural scene are depicted.
The tea strainer is called a "sasame" and is attached directly to the inside of the teapot. This allows the tea leaves to circulate easily inside the pot, making the tea more fragrant. This is especially suitable for drinking high quality Japanese tea.
The teacup has a lid, making it very easy to use when welcoming important guests. The rim of the teacup is decorated with a gold rim, giving it a sophisticated look.
You can create a more formal impression by combining it with this coaster.

About kutani ware
Kutani ware is a type of pottery produced in the Kaga region of Ishikawa Prefecture and it has a history of over 350 years.
It is characterized by the heavy brilliance of the five colors of green, yellow, red, purple, and navy blue that are applied to the bold and daring lines.
Its long history has evolved through the tireless efforts and enthusiasm of people who have sought innovation while maintaining tradition.
In the early 1700s, the Kutani kilns were closed, but about 80 years later they were opened and Kutani ware was revived.
The beauty of the various styles and methods of painting is known as "Japan Kutani" and is highly regarded around the world.
