This Japanese Sake set
for four comes with a tokkuri (Sake flask) and four ochoko (sake glasses), each of them with a unique picture of a Maneki Neko.
Literally, "Beckoning Cat", the Maneki Neko
is believed to have existed as a symbol of bringing good fortune since the Edo period (1603-1867 A.D). The collar, bell, and decorative bib around Maneki Neko's neck is believed to have derived from the way cats were decorated in wealthy households in the Edo period. Today, Maneki Nekos are recognizable lucky charms that are often found in storefronts and on register counters. With their paws raised in a welcoming gesture of beckoning, Maneki Nekos usher in good fortune and wealth for their owners.
This small Japanese sake set has five unique Maneki Nekos. Each ochoko (sake glass) has an adorable Maneki Neko. When a Maneki Neko has its right paw raised, it is a gesture of welcoming wealth and good fortune. When its left paw is raised, it is a gesture of hospitality.
In this Japanese sake set, the five Maneki Nekos welcome good fortune and your guests. Made with fine ceramic, this sake set is versatile and can be used to serve many kinds of sake.
Microwave and dishwasher safe, this cute sake set is made in Japan and comes packaged in a lovely black gift box. With five endearing and cheeky Maneki Nekos on this playful sake set, you and your company will never have a moment of boredom.
