Background

With Japan being such a large tea-drinking nation, it stands to reason that cups and mugs would be an important component in Japanese tableware. Traditional Japanese teacups are always handleless and either bowl- or cylinder-shaped, but more Western-style cups and larger mugs with handles are also common. Take a look at Japan Centre's Teaware section for a great range of stylish and practical Japan-made and Japan-inspired teaware.
