In North America, it isn't very often that you'll see somebody with a sake set in the home. In Asia, however, it's incredibly common. With the popularity of cherry blossoms not only in Japan, but even in America, this sake set works perfectly. Rather than using the rosy colors of real cherry blossoms, this set by Kennedy James uses gold, silver and black to bring a more modern and reserved look to the set.

The set goes by the name of the Yozakura sake set and it uses the cherry blossom shape on the inside of the cup. The carafe (the part that holds and pours out the sake) comes in the shape of an exaggerated petal, adding to the appeal of the set as a whole.
