Handcrafted teacup: 225ml (7.19fl oz) each, diameter: 2.95inches (7.5cm) height: 3.74inches (9.5cm)
Sophisticated Kyo Yaki (Kyoto Style)
Made by Tohan Dobuchi at Tohan Kiln
Mr. Tohan Dobuchi was born in 1980 and is the fourth Tohan. The first Tohan Dobuchi opened Tohan Kiln in 1922. The current Tohan Dobuchi succeeded the fourth in 2011. Tohan Kiln's unique works, sustained by high level pottery and drawing techniques and various original elegant color glazes in over three hundred colors, are highly appreciated and viewed with awe.
MIYAKO of this name means capital or Kyoto in the middle ages in Japanese, SAKURA means cherry blossoms. Tohan gorgeously expresses the elegant scene of SAKURA cherry blossoms in the Kyoto Miyako capital in the middle ages on this Yunomi. The flowers are painted elegantly, vividly, and intrepidly. SAKURA cherry blossoms are not only a well-loved symbol of spring but are also the national flower of Japan. Cherry blossom viewing of the imperial family or court nobles in the Kyoto Miyako capital must have been quite gorgeous and elegant, much like the atmosphere of these Yunomi.
We don't usually offer pillbox-style Yunomi like those used at SUSHI restaurants, but these Yunomi are painted quite exquisitely and elegantly, so we can't help but add them to our line. Because the capacity is rather large (225ml / 7.19fl oz), it is suitable not only to enjoy subtle flavor of high quality Japanese tea, but also to enjoy various drinks, for example, Japanese iced tea, fruit smoothie, wine or sake, or another. It depends upon your vision and preference.
These Yunomi have a graceful aura that will enliven the atmosphere of your daily table, creating a truly extraordinary experience.
