These Sake equipments are created by Mr Tsuyoshi Sato, a famous Kutani ware potter. A large bowl with the same design as this sake cup is on display at a main station in Ishikawa Prefecture.
This set includes a bottle of sake and two cups. The bold blue peonies and the single point of pure gold create a refreshing and elegant look.
Quantities are limited, so don’t miss out!
