This is the type of spoon that will turn you into a Japanese school girl screaming, "KAWAII!!" If it doesn't, check to see if you are a robot. It just hangs on the edge of your mug waiting for you to give it a little attention just like a real Akita Inu. Mug not included. Measures 4.5" long. Ceramic spoon is dishwasher safe. Made in Japan.
