Choku cup | Botan karakusa | amabro

CHOKU cups has a long history back in the Japanese food culture in Japan. The classic choku (meaning: pig mouth) cup is often used as a sake cup or teacup in Japan. It is also used for serving soba noodle dressing or as a bowl for steaming food.
These modernised Arita "CHOKU" cups were made by the collaboration between Arita-yaki locals and amabro. A rework of the 17th century pattens, but this time, with added elements that signify Amabro.  All patterns are hand-printed on the cup by experienced artisans. From birthdays to graduations to weddings, these cups are prefect as a gift.
