    Default Japanese sake bottle and cups

    Hello everyone,

    Recently picked up some more Japanese Sake cups and a bottle on another trip to Tokyo. I don't really know what to look for with these so I just got ones that were interesting to me. Hoping someone can translate for me and let me know if there's anything of note. Sorry for the images, I was struggling to get the right light. Any comments welcome.

    Thanks
    Alex

    Very nice Alex , I really like the bottle along with the other guy's . I like the unusual framing round the artwork , of the Crane and the turtle , which are revered animals in Japanese culture . They believe it to be a mythical creature that can live for a thousand years , therefore representing Good Fortune and Longevity . They refer to it as "The Bird of Happiness" , the wings of the Crane were believed to carry souls up to Paradise . Similarly the Turtle is seen as a symbol of Longevity and Happiness .
    REGARDS AL

    We are the Pilgrims , master, we shall go
    Always a little further : it may be
    Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
    Across that angry or that glimmering sea...

    The bottle commemorates the China Incident:
    支那事変記念
    Shina Jihen Kinen

    One of the cups [Cup 2] — with a block of kanji — commemorates the Manchurian Incident:
    満洲事変記念
    歩三二 32d Inf.

    The two cups with a wreath and star commemorate a soldier’s service in the Imperial Guards.

    I’m on an iPhone so cannot multitask and better ID the cups for you at this time.
