Harekutani Sakura Sauce Plate
The plate features the design of sakura, or cherry blossoms, the national flower of Japan.
Each sakura plate has a different shade of pink, filled with traditional Japanese motifs: Nami-hidori (plovers flying over ocean waves), Yagasuri (arrow), and Asanoha (hemp leaf).
Sakura has symbolic meanings of "spiritual beauty," "elegance," and "excellent education." The plates can be a perfect gift for your loved one, or to yourself.
This comes in an original box which is perfect for a gift.

Harekutani was born in 2017 with the desire to bring Kutani ware to life in a casual manner.
Kutani ware from Ishikawa Prefecture, which has a history of over 300 years, is hand-painted by the artist with delicate patterns.
The characteristic of this product is that it is made of a variety of materials. As one of Japan's representative "colored Kiln", it has the charm of a dignified feel that beautifully complements food.
Perfect idea for the gift
As the Harekutani brand name suggests, these dishes are perfect for special days and make great gifts.
They are also a great choice for birthday celebrations, wedding and family celebrations, gifts, and Mother's Day. All items come in a beautiful gift box, which is a nice touch. The back of the box is also decorated with a beautiful floral design.
The attention to detail in the wrapping as well as in the dishes reflects the fact that we want people to be excited to pick it up and enjoy it. This is because of the wish to have Harekutani.
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.
Korean mugunghwa plate
I bought this because it reminded me of the Korean National flower- mugunghwa. I like the color (I bought the red one), the size, the shape of the petals, and the fact that it’s a decent size. It’s not so small that it seems just for decoration. I’m sure you could use it for sauces but I like to use it for small banchan (Korean side dishes).
Thank you so much for your positive review and great photo! It motivates us to work harder and serve better. We look forward to serving you again!
