Made in Japan, this small ceramic wedding poem Japanese tea cup features in beautiful formal Japanese calligraphy, one of the most well-loved poems of Japan: “Takasago.”

Originally from a noh play, “Takasago” is also the name of a city of Japan and the setting of the noh play. In the play, a travelling Shinto priest comes upon an old couple when visiting the beach town of Takasago-no-ura. Watching the old man sweep the fallen needles of the pine tree, he inquires about the story behind the tree. The old man tells the story of the renowned Takasago pine that is a pair with Suminoe pine that grows in the distant town of Suminoe, and together they are known as “paired pines.”

This beautiful poem is often chanted at Japanese weddings, as a symbol of longevity and harmony between married couples.

Beautifully painted onto this uniquely textured and colored Japanese tea cup , this mug makes a wonderful wedding gift. With the symbolism of pines as an evergreen representation of longevity and the meaningful poem often recited in traditional Japanese wedding celebrations, this mug is the perfect gift for newly weds.

With an elegant pale marbled green on the top and a sandy textured brown on the bottom, this Japanese tea cup is unique and perfect for hot tea, coffee, and hot cocoa. Textured on the top with raised dots, this cup is a unique and elegant way to wish newly weds a long and happy life together.

Microwave and dishwasher safe, and packaged in a blue paper box, a pair of this Japanese tea cup is perfect for couples to curl and snuggle up to with a hot drink on cold nights.

    beautiful Japanese teacups
    July 2, 2013
    the cups themselves were beautiful. It would be nice to have a translation of the Japanese wedding poem on the cup.
    • beautiful and larger than expected
    • no translation of the Japanese wedding poem.
