There is a real charm and hospitality in the traditional Japanese act of serving each other when drinking sake. This sake pitcher is designed to allow to serve and be served easily as you don't have to change its position because it has two spouts located at opposite sides. Also its rhomboid shape allows it to easily be gripped by hand. Just as there is a wide variety of wine glasses to enjoy all sorts of wine, these are sake vessels to enjoy savoring good sake.
We hope you enjoy a good sake wherever you are with this sake gift set.

JICON means "porcelain (JI) in modern times (CON)." In the Buddhist words, JICON means "seize the day." It also denotes "porcelain (JI) created by the house of IMAMURA" of the Touetsugama kiln, founded 350 years ago. The kiln makes porcelains for daily life with its traditional white porcelain techniques using Amakusa Touseki (porcelain stone).
The Touetsugama kiln originated in Mikawachi of Sasebo City in Nagasaki prefecture as a house kiln under the patronage of the Hirado clan. The kiln was redeployed to Arita in Saga prefecture by IMAMURA Shikao XII for its expansion and is currently succeeded by IMAMURA Kenichi XIV. The kiln makes porcelains for daily life with its traditional white porcelain techniques using Amakusa Touseki (porcelain stone).
