love being nostalgic as i use this cup. feels like drinking at kurasu in Fushimi Inari.
It’s real easy on the eyes and has a pleasant heft to it. Doesn’t keep the drink hot for too long but that isn’t an issue for my morning cuppa.
Excellent service and fast shipping. The cup is beautiful however the handle is not attached straight and I find that disappointing.
I purchased (in order to renew my) 16 16 Arita coffee cups which I had purchased during a trip to Japan maybe about 8 or 10 years ago now. I loved the Arita cups and used them over the years a lot daily as they were my favorite cups to enjoy my morning coffee. When one of them fell and broke a few months ago I was sorry as I had only one left and did not know how I could ever get a new one in Istanbul if I would loose the last one at home. Thanks to Kurasu! I found (as I as was searching one day through Internet) the Kurasu site and there I happily found out that there were available stock of my favorite coffee cups of 16 16 Arita to order. I did order regular size cups as well as espresso cups. I am so happy they are arrived safe and in good order to my house here in Istanbul Turkey. They are really super quality white porcelain cups which by time get their own characteristic change in color fading a little brownish through using a lot. They are so shick, minimal, sleek and pleasure to look at when enjoying your morning sip. Thank you so much Kurasu-san!! I would not be able to find easily if it were not your site to make my purchase.
Drinking good coffee is fun, but drinking it from such beautiful cups is better. Thanks to Teruhiro Yanagihara for allowing us to experience a little moment of happiness in this difficult period. And thanks especially to Kurasu for sharing this passion with us. All the best from an Italian coffee lover living in Belgium.
