While staying with a host family back in May, they took me to the extremely scenic city of Okayama, capital of Okayama Prefecture. While walking around we came upon a section of the city that sort of had a Turkish/Indian-inspired aesthetic. These cups were from one of the many shops selling tons of intricate glassware.
To make a comparison for my Halifax people, it was sort of like a reeeally pimped out and expensive version of The Black Market.
My host mother and I had a great time poking around and looking at all the houseware/art; even if we could never afford it. Those tiny cups were going at upwards of ¥2500 each! Think $30+CAD
