"Kinoko" means Mushroom in Japanese. Each cup is hand-thrown by 14th generation Ceramist Mr. Kajiwara at Yamamaru Kiln. The unmistakable Koishiwara signature "tobikanna" spiral chattering pattern was minimally applied to the mushroom cap. Koishiwara artisan takes pride in utilizing local natural material, that nurtures this 350-year-old craft tradition.
This cup is perfect for a cortado or macchiato, also great for pudding, ice-cream, or the popular Japanese "chawan mushi" savory steamed egg custard.
There is also a slightly taller version of KINOKO cup (6.7 fl oz). Check the product page for information.
