Standard Item / Asahiyaki Pottery Collection

Reiwa 4th (2022) Chokudai(theme) of the Imperial Poetry Contest is "Window".

Chokuda is the theme of the new year poetry contest in the imperial palace, which is held every year.
In the tea ceremony, tea utensils are selected in the New Year along with the zodiac signs.
Then, we designed and produced both the zodiac "tiger" and the theme of imperial poetry "window" in one tea bowl.

The tiger is a majestic, regarded as the king of beasts in China and is a symbol of bravery. There is also an old Chinese book that says, "Clouds follow dragons and winds follow tigers." However, the tigers in tea bowls have gentle expressions that makes you feel familiar, as if they were watching the tiger cubs gently from the round windows. Since tigers protect and raise their children very carefully, the ones that are cherished and not let go are called "tiger cubs". Children are treasures, and so are humans.

Tiger is one of the best
