Originally, the "Chirori", a tool for heating sake, was made of metal, but by making it of glass, Hirota Glass has created an elegant, sophisticated item. This set’s beauty captivates the soul, the extravagant blue core featuring the beautiful Japanese glass technique “kiriko”.

Ideal for serving both cold and hot sake. For cold sake, simply put ice in the blue Edo Kiriko container to cool the sake in the "Chirori" without dilution. For hot sake, the "Chirori" is made of heat-resistant glass, and warm sake can be added directly into it after heating. Recommended not only for sake but also for tea, enjoy the color of Japanese tea from within the pot.

History of Edo Kiriko

The traditional craft of "Edo Kiriko" began in the city of Edo (modern day Tokyo) during the 19th century and underwent its unique evolution by incorporating the cutting techniques of European glass brought to Japan during the Meiji era (late 19th century). 

This unique glassware technique was recognized by the Japanese government in 2002 as a National Traditional Craft. Glassware which can be labeled “Edo Kiriko” is strictly reserved for producers who employ artisans who practice the traditional techniques developed during the 19th century.

Brand History

Hirota artisans inherit traditional handicraft techniques such as Edo Kriko, finely cut glass, and Edo Glass, the local Tokyo style. Founded in Tokyo in 1899, Hiroto Glass has established itself as one of the pioneers of Japanese Glassware, developing new artisan glassware with a focus on the reproduction of classic products popular back in the Taisho period.
