Iroha Sake Set

$40.00 $ 14.99

A Poetic Pour

Shaped and formed to emulate the traditional handmade style of sake sets, these ceramic sake cups and bottle feature the Japanese poem "Iroha", commonly translated as "ABCs" and famous because it is a perfect pangram, containing each character of the Japanese syllabary exactly once. Beautifully made and painted, these slightly imperfect pieces feature a red stamp which represents an artisan signature. Made in Japan.

Although its scent still lingers on
the form of a flower has scattered away
For whom will the glory
of this world remain unchanged?
Arriving today at the yonder side
of the deep mountains of evanescent existence
We shall never allow ourselves to drift away
intoxicated, in the world of shallow dreams.

-Translated by Professor Ryuichi Abe
