Product description
A set of soup bowls that you can find literally nowhere else: the artisan behind them took care of each stage of the manufacturing process, from carving to painting and lacquering, making them different from any other set that will ever be made.
This set features flowers and branches of the ume tree (Japanese plum tree). They represent wishes for an always brighter future, and are often featured on gifts for this reason.
This set includes 5 fully handmade bowls with lids.

Instructions for use
This type of bowls is designed for lighter soups, mostly suimono and ozōni soups. Although they may also be used for miso soup, their outstanding looks cause this type of bowls to be preferred for special occasions, such as on New Year and when especially important guests are visiting.
These bowls are not meant to be used for white rice.
