2021 Just BACK IN STOCK! Kajiwara family has been working over the New Year holidays to deliver new batch of Acord and Mushroom cups! Then Japan got hit by a big snow storm, with quite some snow dumped on to the Koishiwara mountain delaying delviery. Well, all is good now! These are small-batch hand-made, and so inventory is small! Order yours now.
"Kinoko" means Mushroom in Japanese. Each cup is hand-thrown and trimmed by 14th generation Ceramist Mr. Kajiwara at Yamamaru.
The infamous signature "tobikanna" (chattering pattern) of Koishwara-ware was minimally applied to the mushroom cap. Koishiwara artisan takes pride and respect local natural material, which nurtures the 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.
A bit smaller than the American standard-size coffee mug, so check the dimensions first!
Our KINOKO muchrooms now come in 3 different colors; Beige, Black and Pink. Choose your favorite!
* Specification may varies due to the nature of hand-made product. Each item is unique.
** Check our Product Care page for information on using and maintaining hand-made pottery.
