<i>Usuhari</i>by SHOTOKU GLASS

USUHARI - Exquisite, Ultra-Thin, Lead-Free Glassware

Named after Daiginjo Saké, the ‘spoke’ rising up from its base and a very thin mouth combine to draw out more of the delicate aromas and flavors of any type of Saké.

Daiginjyo Saké

Daiginjyo is a well-known type of premium Saké. Its distinctive fruity scent and flavor are the result of a special low temperature fermentation process using carefully selected rice.

Esoteric Fluidity!

A beautiful though barely perceptible presence to begin with, fill the Daiginjo and feel the ultra-thin glass transmit the Saké's coolness and fluidity to the palm. Close your eyes and experience this moment of floating as the glass disappears and the liquid is suspended in the palm of your hand.


Each ultra-thin, distinctive piece conveys finesse and sophistication. Mouth-blown by one of the very few masters with the skill and experience to achieve this shape in 0.9mm glass, Usuhari glasses are refined and eye-catching. The artisans use tech developed by SHOTOKU GLASS’s previous incarnation as a light bulb manufacturer (est. 1922). Presented in a traditionally bespoke paulownia (Kiri) wooden box, the Daiginjo is an excellent gift for the Saké lover in your life.

Delicate Strength

Despite their fragile appearance Usuhari glasses can be handled with the same level of care as other glassware.
