This Matcha bowl represents the spring scenery in Japan. Three colors of cherry blossoms are in full bloom, and each flower is dynamically decorated. Golden color is inlayed around the cherry blossoms, creating the gorgeous atmosphere.

KINSAI means coloring with gold, HANA means flower, and SAKURA means cherry blossom in Japanese. Red, pink and white cherry blossom flowers adorn the outside of the Matcha bowl. Brown color branches with green moss are painted with a strong touch. Each flower blooms dynamically, creating a lively scene. Golden color is inlayed around the cherry blossoms, which brings to mind the beauty of the spring haze.

SAKURA cherry blossoms are one of the famous and representative flowers of springtime in Japan. Each flower is dynamically decorated with strong color, and it reminds us of the height of spring. Golden color is luxuriously applied over the contours of the flowers and branches. The fresh green color of the moss and leaves also adds accent to the bowl, and harmonizes all the colors.

Golden color inlays evoke a graceful atmosphere, but also express spring haze. The gorgeous scene in which colorful cherry blossoms are in full bloom holds our attention. Cherry blossoms blooming in the spring haze are so graceful.

Colorful patches of orange inside the bowl are called GOHONDE, a traditional technique that adds warmth to the atmosphere of the work. It is impossible to fully control the contrasting density of GOHONDE, so that GOHONDE is a little different in each work.

The gorgeous and lively atmosphere of SAKURA cherry blossoms is delightfully portrayed on this Matcha bowl. Would you please enjoy the taste of Matcha, dressed in the fragrance of cherry blossoms?
