    Introducing the versatile Asakura Bowl, a larger-sized bowl that combines the stability of a traditional soup bowl with the convenience of a modern donburi. The bowl's sturdy base and flared rim ensure a secure grip and easy sipping, while its spacious interior is perfect for noodle dishes and rice bowls.

    Crafted using the "Echizen Kataurushi" technique, a collaborative effort between Fukui Prefecture and the University of Fukui, this bowl features a durable lacquer finish that can withstand the demands of modern life, including dishwasher use. The "Shinnuri" technique, which involves carefully filtering the lacquer to remove impurities and applying it in a single coat without leaving brush marks, results in a luxurious, high-quality finish.

    Available in two sizes (4 sun and 4.5 sun) and two colors (black and vermilion), the Asakura Bowl is named after the lacquerware bowls excavated from the ruins of the Ichijodani Asakura Clan. While maintaining a traditional form, these bowls offer enhanced heat and durability compared to conventional lacquerware, making them ideal for everyday use.
