Description:
The Kurikyu sake cup is a combination of Japanese traditional craft with contemporary design. One slice of very thin Japanese cedar is bent to give the cups their unique shape. The beautiful grain of the wood layers is visible and emphasizes the design of the cups. Cedar is very fragrant, and this smell will compliment the flavor of sake, adding another layer of enjoyment to your drinking experience. These sake cups received the Good Design Award. 

Variation:
There may be variation in the grain of the wood. The cup you receive may not be the exact cup displayed here.
