Jin Akihiro is a wood craftsman based out of Kagoshima and is 1 of a 3-person family team that runs a small wood studio. Known for creating everything from custom-made furniture to retail and residential interiors, Jin has recently been focusing his time on what he calls, “hand-made product design.” His latest endeavor is the KIKASA coffee cup – an homage to the Finnish Kuksa Camping Cups. Hand-carved from lightweight birch, the cup requires no cleaning (just a quick rinse of water) and is sure to age beautifully from all those coffee oils. It’s indeed the perfect cup to take on your travels.

The cup (7,350 yen) is currently out of stock but here’s to hopes that they replenish. It also comes with a gorgeous drawstring bag designed by Kimiaki Eto.
