Luxurious bar experience at home

Written by Yuta Shirahata 白幡雄大   There are many good liquors being imported from Japan. Among such Japanese liquors, there are luxury ones that cost 500 ~ 1,000HKD.

  In 2013, Unesco registered Japanese food culture: Washoku(和食)as a world cultural heritage. We are proud of Japanese food, but pottery plays an important role in it.

Back to the origin, primary earthenware made 10,000 years ago was found. Through this long history, Japan developed a lot of techniques for pottery.   We would like to...
