This is a sophisticated tumbler glass with Japanese traditional painting by a Kyo Yaki artisan. This can be used for serving a wide variety of food and drink from Japanese tea or sake to ice cream and parfait and is perfect for everyday use or special occasion. It will expand in application depending on your idea. Of course, it can be used not only in the summer season but throughout the year.

Zenshoh Yamaoka, who painted this glass, is the leading expert of paintings derived from masterpieces in the middle ages. This drawing pattern is designed in the motif of a traditional painting called TAKE TORAZU, which was originally drawn by Tanyu Kano (1602 - 1672). It is said that Tanyu KANO was the great ancestor who revived the KANO school which flourished for about 400 years from the 15th century to 19th century and played the most significant role in Japanese painting history.

TAKEZU of this name means a painting of Bamboo. Bamboo symbolizes congratulations and best wishes. In Japan, bamboo is also a symbol of patience because bamboo is flexible - and integrity because bamboo is straight from root to tip. The bamboo is painted dignifiedly and elegantly.

Patterns are drawn on the outside surface of the glass. The impression of viewing from the inside is interestingly different because these patterns are viewed through the glass.

This sophisticated tumbler glass will certainly add unique atmosphere to a table, and make any moment special.

Specially packaged in a carton box.
Lead-free. Made in Japan.
