Basic description of the project:
"YAOKI" is named from "Nana korobi yaoki", the Japanese old proverb, "Rise eight times after falling seven" and epitomizes the spirit of "never give up." The unique shape of the bottle reflects the concept. It is just like a roly-poly Daruma doll or oki-agari-ko-boshi in Japanese; it will rise up time after time even if it almost falls down. The remarkable material is the "Arita-yaki", one of the most famous potteries in the world.
