There is the quiet, simple, minimalist Japanese style - and then there is the Owari Shippo style of cloisonné, created in the mid-19th century in the Owari feudal domain ruled by one branch of the Tokugawa shogun clan. With brightly colored enamel set on a metallic base - in the case of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Owari Shippo Cloisonné Sake Cup Set, copper - crafted in Tsubame, Niigata Prefecture, this ware is very different from anything usually associated with Japan. The milky hue of the inside also makes it perfect for sake, allowing you to appreciate its clear color.
Even better, the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Owari Shippo Cloisonné Sake Cup Set contains five cups; this makes it perfect for sharing a cup of sake with your friends! The Tokyo 2020 Olympics imagery is there (each cup features a Tokyo 2020 Olympics insignia and logo and the Olympic rings on its bottom) but even without them, these beautiful cups and their elegant paulownia wood box are exquisite pieces of craftsmanship that go far beyond the level of standard Olympic memorabilia and into the realm of true art.
