Miyabitake is a brand of bamboo products handmade in Beppu City, Oita Prefecture, where is the largest producer of Japanese timber bamboo.
Beppu bamboo crafts originated in the Muromachi period (1336-1573) when baskets for peddlers were made and sold. During the Edo period (1603-1868), as the name of Beppu Hot Springs spread, kitchen utensils were made for use by the guests of the hot springs during their stay. As these items were brought back home as souvenirs, many bamboo crafts were produced and became a local industry in the Beppu area.

I just received the Bamboo Strainer w/feet. I am so pleased. Delivery was swift given it's coming from across an ocean. And there was many updates on the tracking. The strainer is perfect for my needs. I like to lay washed vegetables and mushrooms on a strainer, but only have deep ones, this one will allow me to lay food side by side. As well, I can see other uses for it, like presenting desserts, etc. with a light cloth or napkin on it. And in the summer, I make Zaru Soba, and I would like to place my Soba noodles on this Strainer for dipping into a sauce cup. I am glad to have this nice addition.

Keeps Food Aerated
A good way to keep soba noodles dry but not soaking wet while you eat it. Very pretty too with the white woven layer around. Can also be used for spaghetti noodles for up to 4 people.
Thanks for leaving such a wonderful feedback! Learning about the pleasant experience you had with this item is really confidence-boosting.
