- Tiny Plates - kleiner japanischer Teller -


These palm-size tiny plates are called "mamezara", are used generally to serve small side dishes, and soy sauce for sashimi, spice/condiments, or garnish (green onion, wasabi or grated ginger) for Cold Soba, or small ingredient. "Mame" means 'beans' signify 'tiny, small', and "zara" is the plural of 'sara' means 'plate'. As small and cute things are described with the word "MAME", the word "mamezara" came to be.
 
The Mamezara - varied with its shapes, patterns, decorations, from the traditional styles to more modern, contemporary versions, have been admired in Japan. And due to the vast array of design, the plates are especially popular with collectors, who enjoy finding their favorites.
