Hi there,

Does anyone know a good spot to buy unique sake glasses? Most of the places i know (in the Pacific Mall or on Hwy 7) sell a pretty standard/mainstream lot.

Thanks!

    Tap Phuong on Spadina, just north of Dundas has a wide selection but you may find them conventional too.

    Have you ever thought of going to the One of a Kind to scope out the potters? Then for sure you are getting something beautiful and unique.

    Good luck and happy searching.

      There is a Japanese tableware chain in Toronto. They have 1 store in Richmond Hill (Hwy 7 & Commerce Valley West) and 1 store in Vaughan (Promenade Mall right besides T&T Supermarket). They have a decent selection there, still slightly mainstream but I guess you have to take what you can get if you are not in Asia.

        Have you tried J-town? On the north side of Steeles Ave E just east of Woodbine Ave.

        Same plaza as the buffet place....behind it actually.

          There's a store near T&T at the Promenade (the name escapes me) which sells all kinds of Japanese wares, eg bento boxes, noodle bowls, teapots, tea cups etc. I imagine they would carry some sake cups/glasses.

            There's also place on the top level of Pacific Mall at Kennedy and Steeles.

              The chain is called Utsuwa no Yakata (House of containers).

                  Hello there Fern,

                  I suggest checking our "Things Japanese" on Harbord Street. A very unique Japanese shop with everything you need to complete your asian table.
                  I hope this helps.

                  Angie
