Fujisan Guinomi (Mount Fuji sake cups)

Drinking Vessels (Lipped Bowls/Sake Bottles/Sake Cups)
The Takaoka copperware manufacturer Yotsui Co., Ltd., which has produced and repaired artistic handicrafts for many years, has now collaborated with Osaka Suzuki Co., Ltd. to create sake cups using traditional Osaka Naniwa Suzuki tin-ware crafting techniques. Depicting the symbol of Japan, Mount Fuji, with an artistic flair, the cups are shaped to fit gently in the hand. Their attractive designs allow them to double as interior objects when not in use. The cups come in five designs—Black Fuji for spring, Green Fuji for summer, Red Fuji for autumn, White Fuji for winter, and Gold Fuji for auspicious events—all handmade by craftspeople using techniques handed down over many generations. The cups are ideal as everyday tableware, as well as interior pieces that impart a pleasant sense of seasonal color.
