Hello! I am a staff member of the Japanese tableware mail order site "Uchiru".
This time we will introduce Shigaraki ware mugs and soup cups.
Is Shigaraki ware made of that tanuki?

If you think so, you've hit the jackpot!

Shigaraki ware is a type of pottery made in Shigaraki, Shiga Prefecture.

A wide variety of ceramics are made, from large pieces like raccoon dogs to small pottery that can be used at the dining table.

I want to take a look first at what kind of mugs and soup cups there are in Shigaraki ware! You can also view it here.
