12 months cold sake cup - September "Jugoya"

The full moon can be seen in mid-September in modern times called "Jugoya", and Japanese people have always loved the moon at this time of the year.
The aristocrats of the Heian period were particularly enthusiastic in their love of the moon, and instead of looking directly at the moon in the night sky, they dared to enjoy its reflection on a cup or pond.
The cold sake cups of September remind us of the elegant playfulness of the olden days.

The gorgeous full moon is drawn with gold leaf.
The Japanese pampas grass painted on the foot of the cup also complements the moon.
The combination of the moon and Japanese pampas grass is a traditional design that evokes the feeling of autumn.

Lacquerware sake cup is especially popular among those who like to drink, as it is pleasant to the palate and offers a different taste from other vessels.
It is also enjoyed as a vessel for sweets and dishes, or as a beautiful decoration.
This sake cup is also a popular birthday gift for people born in September.

The handle of the 12 months cold sake cup is characterized by its very thin, straight, and uniform appearance.
Many people think that these handles are glued on afterwards, but in fact, they are carved from a single piece of wood.

As you can see in the photo, you can see how the wood base is shaved in the order of 1, 2, 3, and 4.
Although most of the wood base is shaved off, it is kept strong as one piece.

The delicate and beautiful handle of this chilled sake cup is the result of skilled workmanship.
We hope you will enjoy the beauty of the design and the quality of the handiwork.

We have prepared a special gift box.

Dedicated vanity case

While keeping the sake cup firmly in place, we have made an effort to make the beautiful seasonal design visible as soon as the box is opened.

A special gift box for 2 cups is also available.

Cosmetic box for two customers

We also have a gift box for 2 cups, which is popular gift for couples.
* If you wish to have the box, please purchase 2 sake cups and write [set of 2 box request] in the remarks column.
