Around the rim, a ring of soft pink complements the surface, which is meticulously decorated with pink and white gradient cherry blossoms and petals. The body of the cup features a concave design, not only shaping the cherry blossoms but also enhancing the grip. It combines aesthetics with practicality.

It can be used to savor Japanese sake or other spirits, as well as various teas. The cherry blossom motif and the enchanting lustrous glaze are sure to add color and charm to your life.

At Tasei Kiln, two skilled female artisans, each with over 40 years of experience, meticulously paint intricate and graceful patterns onto each item before coating them with a luster glaze. This special technique imbues the sake cup with a luxurious and stylish feel. Following the painting of sakura designs, they are meticulously masked off, leaving the remaining surface to be coated with the luster glaze. The white surface exhibits a distinct textured glossy glimmer and shines beautifully under light, enhanced by an added sprinkle of glaze.

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.
