This beautiful traditional Japanese Tea Cup Set features stylized depictions of a famous Zen Buddhist temple located in Kyoto, Japan (blue background), and a woman gazing out upon the temple from a footbridge (pink background).

The Kinkaku-ji temple (金閣寺) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is best known for the gold leaf coating that covers the entire outside of the temple's upper stories.

This style of Japanese tea mug (yunomi, 湯のみ) is traditional in Japan for casual tea drinking. Since they lack handles, these mugs are typically sipped using two hands. A set of two mugs like this is known as a "meoto yunmoi" or "teacup couple", where the larger cup is the 'husband', and the smaller is the 'wife'.

These Japanese mugs make for a wonderful addition to any kitchen to hold your favorite warm beverage, as decor, or as a thoughtful gift.
