Japanese folklore and beautiful flowers come together in this beautiful and finely detailed Japanese noodle bowl set featuring cherry blossoms and dragons.
In Japan, designs of dragons which are legendary mythological and folklore creatures were heavily influenced from China. Seen mostly as water, rain, or river deities, dragons are known as “Ryu” or “Nihon no Ryu” which means Japanese Dragon. There are many mythical stories about these dragon deities and even myths about dragons living in lakes near temples. In one of these stories, a Zen priest once saw a 9-headed dragon come out of a lake near a shrine on Mount Haku and saw the dragon transforms into a goddess. Folklore like these are celebrated with festivals and firework shows in places like the Lake Saiko Dragon Shrine in Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi.
Another image depicted on these beautiful Japanese noodle bowls is the well-known and beloved cherry blossom. Loved for their beautiful yet very short blossom, cherry blossoms are so loved in Japan that during the spring season when cherry blossoms are in full bloom, the Japanese hold festivals in honor of their beautiful bloom. Families, coworkers, and classmates all gather around and under a large cherry blossom tree to enjoy bento boxes, traditional stand foods, home made meals and sake. Some even come at night to enjoy one another’s company as the cherry blossoms fall.
With two bowls featuring the mythical dragon in blue and red and two other bowls featuring the beautiful cherry blossom in black and white, these Japanese noodle bowls are perfect for enjoying your favorite ramen, pho, or stews. The Dragon bowls show a fierce and highly detailed and textured Japanese dragon flying in the clouds with Mt. Fuji in the background, whereas the cherry blossom bowls show scattered blooming cherry blossoms and petals all throughout the inside of the bowl. The white cherry blossom bowl also is a simple white on the outside, whereas the black cherry blossom bowl is a smooth and glossy black on the outside. The images of dragon can be seen on both sides of the dragon bowls which have smooth and glossy surface.
A perfect housewarming gift for those who love everything Japan, this Japanese noodle bowl set comes with four different bowls. These ramen bowls are also microwave and dishwasher safe for your convenience.
