A unique set of glasses born of a combination of the west’s traditional crystal glass and Japan’s traditional facets.
This glass takes one of Japan’s most well known mountains, Mt. Fuji, and combines it with the Crane which has been loved and recognized in Japan as a symbol of luck from long ago. Through the art of gravure carving, these 2 images of Mt. Fuji and the large wing-spanned crane are able to be delicately carved into the glass with great detail. The crystal glass’ transparency beautifully brings attention to the sake’s refined color. Created by master artisans using carefully selected materials, they have a refined design and hold a high level of transparency, with their most characteristic feature being their tone and shine. These Japanese-made glasses, with their Japanese design, can be used in your home, but are also perfect as a gift for friends or family.
