Look at these beautiful colors! The size of these cups is rather big, so you may use it well for many occasions. As there are beautiful designs depicted inside of the cup, you may enjoy them every time you have a drink with this cup. The handle of this cup is thin, so it is easy to hold it. Each cup was made by craft masters, so none of them is the same. Please enjoy the beautiful colors while having a drink.

These cups are for when you have “sake”, a Japanese alcohol. There are several gradation inside of the cups and each one of them are different as they are the handmade products by craft masters. It is interesting to note that the color of the cup becomes darker when you pour sake and it becomes lighter color after drinking it. These are very popular especially among Chinese customers.

If you would like to buy a Matcha starter kit, this is what you should get! Inside of the gorgeous bag, there are a Matcha cup, bamboo whisk called Chasen, spoon and box to put Matcha powder. It is great that you can put all these things in one bag, so it doesn’t take much space when you put it in your bag. You can choose the color of the Matcha box.

I personally love Yamanaka Gato and their high quality products as they are all exquisite and gorgeous. My personal recommendation goes to mag cups as you can use them in the daily life for long time. I have some of their products such as rice bowls and teacups which are very magnificent in quality and have beautiful design depicted on them. All the staff are very nice and kind, so please feel free to ask any questions to them!
