The moon of Echizen shining in your hand

From Echizen, a region with a long history of lacquerware, Tsuchinao Shikki brings a wide range of innovative new products to life. This "Bajyohai" cup features a high foot, a style that is easy to hold with one hand, historically made for warriors on horseback when they cheer for victory. It is made with a transparent finishing technique called “kijiro-nuri,” which allows the wood grain to show through, bringing out a light and modern feeling. The moon painted in silver glows an amber color, and becomes more luminous the more you use it. A tasteful cup with which to enjoy Japanese sake, while gazing at the shimmering moon in your hands.
