This Kyoto Pottery Sake Cup Red Sakura has the meaning of “Japanese nature and breeze” and this red colour adds the accent on this white sake cup named “GUINOMI”. The vibrant and fiery tones are the standout features of this authentic Japanese design. Though traditionally used for Sake in Japan, this cup can be used to enjoy any drink.
Rokubeygama was opened in 1771 in the Gojyosaka area of Kyoto by its founder, Kiyomizu Rokubey. After 250 years, Rokubeygama is currently in its eighth generation and has become a well-respected family of artistic pottery. Following the rise in popularity of Kyo-yaki, the principals of each generation have since been creating pieces using this traditional technique. Under the supervision of the current owner Kiyomizu Rokubey, Rokubeygama continues to produce works that suit the modern lifestyle such as dishes, vases, ornaments, and tea sets.
