Each detail of Mt. Fuji is carefully hand-finished, making this sake cup a perfect gift. Made of 100% tin (Gold has gold leaf processing). Known as the most expensive metal after gold and silver, tin is highly malleable and flexible. It is white like silver, but it does not rust easily and does not pollute the air. It is also known as a material with excellent antibacterial properties, low allergic reactivity, and high thermal conductivity. You can also keep your drink fresh and cold by chilling it in the fridge for 2-3 minutes before using it. This sake cup is made of 100% tin, although it is common to add other metallic materials to the processing of tin products for durability and ease of cutting work. It is an all-handmade product packed with the experience and skills of craftsmen.
