The motif of this product is an image of the moon that remains in the sky of dawn, called "Ariake" moon.
The brightness of dawn is expressed in glossy vermillion lacquer, and the moonlight in it is expressed in Maki-e (gold lacquer decoration) and it gives you a gorgeous impression.
In Japan, we have a custom of viewing the moon in the evening of the Mid-Autumn Festival.
It is fun to drink sake while watching the moon.
In the past, it is said that person of refined taste, called "Fu-ryu-jin" in Japanese, enjoyed looking at the moon reflected in the sake cup rather than looking up at the moon in the night's sky.
This series "Sakasatsuki" is produced with such an "upside-down moon reflected in a sake cup" as a concept, which has six various designs of moons.
“Sakasa” means of upside-down, and “tsuki” is the moon in Japanese. The form is also so unique.
It is produced by Isuke Shoten Co., Ltd., that was originally a lacquer dealer in Kyoto and is designed by Miyake Kazushige.
Wooden sake cup has warmth retention, and it does not get cold easily. Even if a hot sake is put in it, the outside is not so hot and easy to hold. It is light and also has a gentle mouthfeel.
It is highly recommended as a gift for the wedding, birthday, or various anniversaries, and as a gift set with another sake cups of the same series.
