Like a sun setting in the ocean

Nousaku is a craft metal maker from Toyama prefecture. Each piece is handmade with tin and gold leaf decorating the interior. This is a traditional craft with strong ties to Takaoka, Toyama. The artistry and gold bring a new level of grace to your sake experience. These cups have high thermal conductivity so don’t use them for hot sake but gently warmed sake is ok. Wash by hand, the leafing won't hold up to machine washing.
