At a Japanese tavern izakaya, a man says: “A Japanese dinner is not complete without Japanese sake” and grabs a bottle of sake.
His wife stops him: “Japanese sake is not complete without a flask”. The man agrees and asks for a flask.
The waitress kindly but firmly corrects them. “Dear guests, what you said is true. But as no good dinner is best without sake, and no sake is best without its flask, a flask is not best unless you reserve it the same care you have for your dinner and your sake.”
The couple looks at her confused, so she shows them a bamboo basket filled with flasks and cups.
Unsure, they pick a flask and two cups that catch their eye. She bows slightly, and leaves.
When she comes back with hot sake in the steaming flask with two cups, they don’t hesitate, pour the sake into the cups, and drink.

She was right!
How far more wonderful does the sake taste, when poured from a beautiful flask into a beautiful cup, and how more enjoyable time is when you love each of the things you do.

Designed and made in Kyoto (Japan).

Product description
Hand-made sake set, including 1 flask (tokuri) and 1 cup (guinomi).
The peculiar light-blue color is the result of Naoto Suzuki's unique glaze, made mixing materials and with a total of four kiln firings. The potter and artist will manually apply each layer of glaze then fire the items. The result is a multi-layered color, with several tones of light blue appearing over one another. The final effect sports a beautiful balance between raw looks and fine shapes.
Since each glazing and firing is an irreplicable process run by hand, there is not one piece that will look the same as another.

Designed and made by Kyoto-based potter and artist Naoto Suzuki (Kyoto), 4th generation potter of Kyo-yaki.
A subtle Japanese feel, with a unique universal twist of fine artisanship.

The items come in especially designed, Kyoto-made wooden boxes, called kiribako.

Instructions for use
Pour your favorite sake in the flask and heat it up in hot water to make hot sake (see our article about Japanese sake to know more), or serve at room temperature.
Serve directly from the flask into the cup and enjoy.

The items in this set are also available separately.

Care
Wash immediately after use. Wipe the outside with a dry cloth, and let the inside dry naturally.
