FUJI means wisteria and SAKURA means cherry blossoms in Japanese. Each flower represents spring in Japan. They are painted elegantly together on one Matcha bowl, symbolizing Japanese spring.

The SAKURA cherry blossoms are painted beautifully, using white, pink, and gold colors. The FUJI wisteria are painted gently, using light purple color for the petals and green color for the leaves. The combination of lovely SAKURA and gentle FUJI is very beautiful.

FUJI wisteria and SAKURA cherry blossoms are outlined in gold paint, giving them a sense of depth and texture. Because of this expression, FUJI and SAKURA are glossy but not too ostentatious, giving an elegant impression.

This Matcha bowl is brushed with gold paint. It is called KIN TATAKI. The feathery gold painting evokes an impression of luxury. It also looks like KASUMI, which means haze.

FUJI wisteria and SAKURA cherry blossoms are also painted on the inside of the bowl, creating a three-dimensional effect. They are very carefully painted and have a quality that exceeds the price.

Once you use this special Matcha bowl, it will add a wonderful and elegant atmosphere to your tea time through the year.

Specially packaged in a carton box.
Lead-free. Made in Japan.
(Please note that each piece is unique due to the techniques employed by the artisan. There are natural variations in each piece.)

Ninsei Nonomura was an artist who developed Kyo-Yaki style in the early 17th century. He was best known for his definitive pottery wheel technique and printing on Kyo-Yaki. Kenzan Ogata (1663-1743) was one of the first to paint four seasons flowers on pottery in Japan.
