Nousaku Tin Crafted Fujiyama Sake Cup Set
Iconic mountain-shaped traditional metalwork drinking vessel
Sake and Mount Fuji. Could the Nousaku Tin Crafted Fujiyama Sake Cup Set be any more Japanese? As a matter of fact, there is: add a metalworking craft tradition that goes back to the times of the shogun (1600s-1868) in the city of Takaoka in West Japan's mountainous Toyama Prefecture and even a paulownia wood box that gives the set (consisting of one or two cups) a classic look and feel. And it actually is a classic that becomes even more precious with time.
The material used for the cups in the Nousaku Tin Crafted Fujiyama Sake Cup Set is pure, 100% tin – a material perfect for tableware because of its natural antibacterial properties. Using the soft metal, the artisans of Nousaku, a company part of Takaoka's metalworking tradition since 1916, have created an amazing replica of Mount Fuji that complements your sake perfectly. And every time you finish your drink, you can turn it over and marvel at Japan's most iconic mountain before you fill it up again!
