The process of polishing rice is called "seimai" and it is an essential step in making sake.
Inspired by the fact that brewer's rice or "sakamai" changes into different shapes depending on the polishing ratio, the product was designed based on the round silhouette of the most popular "30% polishing ratio" rice grain as its motif.
"Mai" takes its name from "米 (Japanese character representing rice)," which has the same pronunciation. It is a set of sake glasses featuring the popular "Mai3 Small" and two "Mai Katakuchi."

- Comment from the store manager
 Light is reflected diffusely on the inner moulding, making the drink twinkle. An exquisite glass for the eyes as well. A sake glass set inspired by rice, which has been long loved as an auspicious item symbolizing "prosperity of descendants" and "fertility," is also perfect for wedding gifts as well as wedding souvenirs.

Kimoto Glass Tokyo
In Tokyo, you can find all kinds of wonderful glass products including Edo kiriko, the Japanese form of traditional cut glass. The city also is home to craftspersons with extraordinary skills. Kimoto Glass Tokyo, which has continued to serve as a bridge between craftspersons and customers as glass wholesaler for 80 years, considers that it is its mission to create and transmit techniques for the further advancement of glass to the public, along with producing various innovative glass products.

From black Edo kiriko, which was challenging to create until today, and sandblasted glasses to streamline-shaped glasses based on ergonomics, such innovative-looking glasses made from the traditional technique of the craftsperson are all due to the company's power as a glass producer, which brought craftspersons and designers working actively in this area together.

In addition, Kimoto Glass Tokyo calls for the importance of enjoying sake, which boasts a wide variety of flavours and tastes, by changing the shapes and sizes of its glasses depending on the taste and how you drink them, just like wine and cocktails. The company proposes a "marriage" of sake and glass to accompany the dishes together with sake brewers based in Japan. A glass with a large bowl goes very well with sake characterized by a fragrant flavour. A tall, slim glass goes well with sake with a refreshing taste. By simply changing the glass, one may have an entirely different impression of even a familiar sake. The evolution of Edo glass will make Japanese food culture even more interesting.
