Sakura Kutani Japanese Rice Bowl Pair
A pair of rice bowls decorated with brush painted cherry blossoms and falling petals. The pale pink color shines against the white porcelain base, beautifully depicting the petals dancing in the wind.
In Japan, there is a culture of giving rice bowls as a gift to married couples to celebrate their marriage. It's also perfect for use together with best friends, siblings, or parents and children.
As you can see in the picture, the two are slightly different sizes. It's a good idea to choose your favorite bowl according to the amount of rice each person eats.
We wish the pair of bowls will make you and your loved one's meals happier and more enjoyable.

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.
