This "Wagahai" ("my drink") cup set includes two cups - one flat and one round. Just as the name states, you get two cups that let you enjoy your drink in two different ways, and the appealing look also lets you use them as charming interior decorative items!
The paulownia storage box features a design the same as that on the cups, hand-drawn one at a time, for an eye-catching look that adds a sense of unity to the set. Also a great choice as a gift that people will love. Adorned with a rising dragon design.

[Kutaniyaki]
Kutaniyaki has been designated by the Minster of Economy, Trade, and Industry as a traditional Japanese craft.
JAPAN KUTANI is an art that represents Japan! This work of art boasts five colors that show the history and tradition of the Kaga Hyakuman-koku, a fief known for producing a million "koku" (about five million bushels) of rice.
Featuring a bold, original composition and rich, beautiful use of colors, this glazed pottery has breathtaking expressive qualities that represent the best of Japanese craft.
This style of pottery was created approximately 360 years ago (around 1655, in the early Edo period) in the village of Kutani, located in the Daishoji domain (part of the Kaga clan) to symbolize the glory of Kaga Hyakuman-koku. This pottery boasts a focus on dazzling, luxurious decorative glazing and a unique style that colorfully illustrates the atmosphere of daily life.
The appeal of Kutaniyaki can be found in its coloring, the Kutani Five Colors - red, blue (green), yellow, purple, and navy - that form its base while the shimmering, transparent appearance of the glaze brings out its depictive qualities. The combination of the strong sturdy porcelain material and the graceful, elegant use of the five colors has established a style of innovative, artistic pottery.
Under the name JAPAN KUTANI, this pottery has been known as an export since the Meiji period that has grown to have wide name recognition and popularity in the West. One man in particular, named Shoza Kutani, established a line of "colored brocade" vases and other works that planted the seeds of worldwide popularity thanks to his exhibition at a World Expo.
This history, tradition, and thought continues to this day in the vibrant appearance of Kutaniyaki, which is created with the feelings of craftsmen who wish to add vibrancy and warmth to the long winters of the Hokuriku region. The beauty of the glass glaze and its smooth, transparent appearance attracts pottery enthusiasts from all corners of the world.
