The Secret of Their Unique Designs
These glasses, which were made in joint development with a Japanese restaurant by the name of “Nasubi Tei”, have completely unique designs. When talking to anyone from Tokyo, if you’re looking for a high-class Japanese-style restaurant in Ebisu then almost everyone will tell you to go to Nasubi Tei which has been operating since the year 2000. Hidehiro Yoshioka, the head of Nasubi Tei, helped to develop these glasses into a product that has become loved by many Japanese people. While small, we’re sure you can agree that the design has both grace and boldness. They can be used, of course, for white wine, but are also a perfect choice for sweet liquor.

These traditional Edo Kiriko-designed glasses have individual motifs of “Plum, Pine, and Bamboo” all of which have been known to give lucky omens from time immemorial. Their “interlaced chrysanthemum” design refers to the continuous delicate intersections similar to that of a chrysanthemum flower. It is said that the power of long life lies within the chrysanthemum flower, which was one used as a medicine and a flower to heal the heart. It is said to be a very noble and high class flower loved by many.
