KYO of this name means KYOTO and HARU means spring in Japanese. SAKURA cherry blossoms, painted on this Yunomi, are well-loved flowers, symbolizing springtime, in Japan. Considering the price and quality, this Yunomi is an outstanding value.

Weeping cherry trees are brightly, carefully and vividly painted on the outside of this Yunomi. Weeping cherry trees are loved even more so than SAKURA because of the emotional peace. Pink and white cherry blossoms, the contours of which are colored in gold, are well contrasted with the weeping cherry trees.

The unique shape is also one of the focal points of this Yunomi. The round and ellipse carvings are designed around the slim lower body. The shape of the slim lower body gradually becomes fuller, then gradually narrows again toward the upper rim, creating a soft and lovely atmosphere. The scraped design not only adds accent to the tea cup but also fits to the fingertips comfortably, and the body fits the palm very calmly with the temperature of green tea.

Though the color and brushwork are vivid, the whole atmosphere is amazingly soft and gentle, a beautiful effect characteristic of Shunzan’s expert artistry. This Yunomi is modestly sized, so that it fits your palm, and you can feel the soft and calm spring atmosphere in your hand. Although this Yunomi features a lovely spring scene, it is certainly appropriate for use throughout the year, in any season.

Colorful patches of orange 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 SAKURA cherry blossoms in Kyoto are in full bloom on this Yunomi, and its gracefulness will enhance the taste of green tea. Would you try this Yunomi which evokes the kind and warm spirit of nature?
