This time, we developed sake cups made of tin in collaboration with NAGAE Ltd., a long-established manufacturer of “Takaoka bronze”, which is a traditional industry of Toyama Prefecture. Integration of traditional craft techniques inherited from ancient times, modern technology and design has resulted in the “hiracle” tin series.
As you drink sake from the cup, a cherry blossom appears in it. This luxurious, elegant sake cup is reminiscent of a landscape in which cherry trees are swaying in the wind. The lipped bowl was designed with ease of pouring in mind. Since tin is resistant to acid and corrosion, it has been used for food and drink containers. Please enjoy the tin’s texture and feel, as well as the atmosphere of cherry blossoms together with your favorite sake.
