Keizan Kiln Whale Arita Sakazuki Sake Cup
This Sakazuki Sake cup allows you to enjoy your sake as the picture inside stands out when sake is poured. The boldly drawn whale on the inside makes you feel relaxed and refreshed. The gold color painted on the rim adds an accent.
It can be used not only as a sake cup, but also as a small bowl to serve small dishes or delicacies, or placed on a larger plate to add more sophisticated feeling to your dining table.
"Sakazuki" is the most ancient style of sake cup, and the way people hold the sides and bottom of the cup with both hands symbolizes the Japanese sake culture.
This shape with a shallow bottom and a large opening at the top has been used since ancient times, especially for celebratory occasions. According to one theory, people originally drank sake from shells, so the shape resembles that.
The smooth texture of porcelain feels relaxing and soft to your mouth, bringing out the rich yet delicate taste of Sake. A beautiful and unique sake cup will surely enrich your special time.
The sake cups are available in different patterns, so you can have them all together for a more enjoyable table setting.

ABOUT ARITA WARE
Arita Ware, made in the town of Arita in Saga Prefecture, is the oldest porcelain production area in Japan's history. Arita porcelain is characterized by its translucent white porcelain surface, dyeing using "Gosu" (indigo pigment), and gorgeous red painting using glassy overglaze pigments (red, green, yellow, purple, and blue). The pottery is highly durable and is produced in a wide variety of styles, from fine art to daily necessities. It was exported to Europe, where it was prized as fine art and called "white gold". Arita Ware is also a prestigious brand that is admired by ceramicists from other regions as a representative porcelain production area.View more Arita ware
