These zodiac sake cups increase one by one each year.
Produced using 100% tin based on skills developed from the processing techniques of "casting", a traditional industry of Takaoka, Toyama Prefecture.
It has been traditionally said "water won't go bad if it's in a tin bowl" or "tin can get rid of an unpleasant flavor" and so has been used for sake cups and teacups.
As it has a high thermal conductivity, you can put it in the fridge for only 1-2 minutes and it will nicely chill any poured in drink, making it perfect for cold sake.
You can also enjoy delicious lukewarm sake with this.
The inner side is simple yet, if you turn it upside down, there is a realistic looking zodiac animal on the bottom.
Year by year, the types available increase.
As well as customers who get these sake cups for their own zodiac year or the year of family members, there are also those who have enjoyed collecting all types of these over 12 years.
