【Live tour】 Toyama / Japanese "Sake" Cup handmaking (Tin Craft)
What we'll do
This tour provide you of "Sake" cup handmaking experience in Takaoka city, Toyama Pref. This "Sake" cut is made of Tin, which is quite flexible metal, so you can easily make a "Sake" cup with your orginl patten by hand.
I will show you such handmaking process of the "Sake" cup, together with quite traditional town landscape of the Artisan town street called "Kanaya-machi".
I enjoyed every part of this tour, but the most fascinating scenes were where the craftsman burnt the surface of the mold to remove dust, and a tin cup appeared out of the broken mold later. The guide Ultraman 62 san explained about the history of the town and every step of the tin cup making, so I could easily understand what was going on. This tour made me want to visit the town and make a tin cup myself someday!!
It was interesting to walk through a quiet local residential area with Ultraman, and to see him trying a tin sake cup making at a craft local workshop. I have been to Takaoka city and enjoyed seeing lots of metal artworks on the streets. I was happy to revisit the city online. Thank you for sharing such a nice experience.
