Note: Packages for most tea & food products will use Yunomi resealable bags or tins (with some exceptions, click here to see info and photos). If you need the original Japanese package, please leave a note in the order comments.

Beautiful contrast of the inner blue and the white outer surface is expressed in this cup.
The dots (holes) on the surface of the cup are connected in lines to recreate the image of the constellations. Blue glaze is applied onto these holes from both inside and outside of the cup to prevent liquid from leaking. Light shines through the small dotted window, creating an interesting effect to the work.
Recommended as a gift.

Spring Constellations - picture

The Big Dipper and Bootes (the Herdsman) are two constellations seen in the spring night sky. Big Dipper, also known as the Plough, is the seven brightest starts of the famous constellation Ursa Major (the Great Bear). This famous grouping of seven stars are important in many countries. It is also one of the first group of stars to be learned. Bootes (the Herdsman) is seen in the norther sky and its name comes from Greek.
