A super rare Mt. Fuji Glass “Bountiful Sakura Blossoms” by Edo Hanakiriko, Hiroki Meguro is here! (*)
A symbolic collaboration between Japan's iconic flower, cherry blossoms, and the special scenic, Mt. Fuji!
The bountiful sakura blossom pattern is designed to be larger in size than the previous sakura blossom pattern, and is three-dimensionally expressed by Meguro's Hanakiriko technique. Beautiful cherry blossoms can be seen more realistically and delicately.
Two cherry blossoms are cut into three places. You can enjoy a different view of the cherry blossoms depending on the viewing angle.
Mt. Fuji is designed on the bottom of the glass.
Each glass is produced by Edo Glass Craftsman of Tajima Glass. The color of the drink reflects on the mountain surface of Mt. Fuji and you can use it while enjoying various expressions of Mt. Fuji. The upper part of the glass touching the lips is thin to improve sensation. The goodness of the glass is the charm of Mt. Fuji
Perfect gift for loved ones or important people.
The glass is wrapped with a “Sakura pattern fabric towel” and delivered in a wooden box.
