Description

The motif of this product is an image of the crescent-like thin moon, called "Sengetsu".
The night’s sky is expressed in glossy black and vermilion lacquer, and the thin shining moon is expressed in the thin lines of several Maki-e (gold lacquer decoration).
It gives you the gorgeous and elegant impressions.

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.
