12 months cold sake cup - May "Koinobori"

May's cold sake cup is a carp streamer swimming in the clear sky.

Carp streamers are said to be raised on May 5 to wish for the success and health of children, based on the legend that a carp climbs up a waterfall and becomes a dragon.
If you finish your sake in a sake cup decorated with a heroic carp streamer, you may be able to achieve further success in life.

 

The carp streamer, which is luxuriously drawn using two-colored foil, sways  when you add sake, as if they were swimming.


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 May.

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.
