Ko-kutani Pine, Bamboo & Plum Kutani Sake Set
This special sake set has a gorgeous and distinctive shape adorned with beautiful Kutani colors.
Pine, Bamboo, and Plums are painted on both cups and the carafe. When the pine, bamboo, and plum are combined in Japanese art, they become symbols of hope and good fortune. This is because the pine and bamboo do not die in winter, and plum blossom is the first seen in spring. Wherever you go in Japan you will see them planted together, put together in flower arrangements, and used in art and design for important occasions.
It is perfect for celebrating a special occasion with your family and friends. Great for New Year's Day, birthdays, moving parties and other events.
It comes in an original wooden box, which makes it a perfect gift for any sake lovers.
