Sake cup & sake pitcher made of 100% tin to commemorate the Japanese New Era. The kanjis for "Reiwa" (令和) are engraved in the interior.
Tinware is said to eliminate the bad flavors of liquor and make it more mellow and delicious. Tinware has been used to make sake offerings (omikidokuri), also called "suzu" or tin in Japanese, since ancient times. Such has it been its influence in history that the Imperial Court still calls their liquor "O-suzu".
Tinware is considered auspicious because it does not rust or decay easily, so it has become a popular gift among people symbolizing prosperity.
Feel with both your hands and tongue the new era of Reiwa, an era that is expected to embrace people's kindness and the rise of culture, with the help of this beautiful set.
