Lipped bowl for cold sake
Sake drunk from "Hirara"
ware has greater depth of flavor.
The Echizen ware flat sake cup "Hirara" is as thin as 1 mm or less. The thinness of the pottery was thought to be difficult to attain.
As the edge of the cup is very thin, the mouth feel is delicate and gentle. Thanks to the flat shape of the cup, the flavor of the sake is improved.
When sake is warm or at room temperature, the sake becomes more flavorful. We hope you try "Hirara".
