JPY ¥31,300

Only 16 pieces in stock!

This tea canister, created by Yatsuyanagi, is made of cherry bark work from Akita Prefecture and decorated with a cherry blossom motif using shell inlays. The glossy brown cherry bark has a moist texture and a beautiful shine. The inside is also made of cherry bark, a traditional and advanced technique.

The bark of the wild cherry tree has moisture-regulating and antibacterial properties that help keep the tea leaves fresh and tasty.

The cherry trees used for Akita cherry bark work are mainly wild cherry trees from the Tohoku region, which grow in a harsh climate and are said to be beautiful and durable.

The cherry bark is carefully peeled off from the trunk and left to dry in the shade for a year or two to remove the moisture. Yatsuyanagi is committed to the preservation of sustainable nature and the coexistence and co-prosperity of nature and traditional crafts. They are also actively involved in planting wild cherry trees on fallow land.

Since its establishment in 1876, Yatsuyanagi has been engaged in the manufacture and sale of wild cherry bark work for generations in Kakunodate, Senboku City, Akita Prefecture, a place rich in nature. They are a manufacturer that puts their heart and soul into each and every product, using the high technology that has been handed down from generation to generation to create tools for daily life that are both easy to use and beautiful.

Stunning craftsmanship

Initially I wondered if the price was too high, but when I received it, I could see the perfection in design and craftsmanship and could see its true worth. I bought two as gifts for my daughters and I can’t wait to give them! Everything was very well-packaged and arrived very quickly. I also appreciate the furoshiki wrapping, but my only one complaint is that I bought two each of three different items (total of 6), but everything was wrapped together in one large bundle. I wish they were wrapped separately since the items are for two people.

It is great to know that you are pleased with your order. We so hope that your dear daughters will be happy with your gift. One order will include one furoshiki, so unfortunately there was only one in it. However if you really liked the furoshiki, please check the link also, just looking at it is fun for me! https://musubikiln.com/search?q=furoshiki&type=product

A work of art you can use every day!

A perfect marriage of form and function. This tea canister is great for storing your loose-leaf tea - which should come as no surprise - but its simple, refined beauty puts it on an entirely different level. It is an amazingly sublime example of quality craftsmanship from a very talented artisan.
