Yamachiku Bamboo Chopsticks

Yamachiku is a Kyushu-based factory that has been specializing in bamboo chopsticks for many years. Bamboo grows well in warm areas, and Kyushu prefecture accounts for about 40% of the total area of bamboo forests in Japan. For half a century since its predecessor established a bamboo material factory in 1963, Yamachiku has consistently worked to make products that make the most of bamboo. As a natural material, bamboo is difficult to process, but because Yamachiku is a manufacturer with a thorough understanding of bamboo's nature, they have succeeded in producing many high-quality bamboo chopsticks.

In addition, bamboo can maintain its strength even in a thin shape, so delicate and beautiful chopsticks will make your dining table more elegant.

Yamachiku's Philosophy 

"Yamachiku only make bamboo chopsticks from pure, natural bamboo harvested from deep in the mountains of Kumamoto and Fukuoka prefectures.
Once you use our bamboo chopsticks, you can clearly see the difference. Some customers who use our products say they no longer want to use anything but bamboo chopsticks.
We will continue to make products, believing that bamboo chopsticks will enable more people to have a pleasant dining experience".


Bamboo grows at an astonishingly fast rate, with some growing more than one meter per day. In addition, bamboo forests produce more than 30% more oxygen than normal forests and absorb and store a lot of carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases.On the other hand, because of its high vitality, bamboo is said to destroy forests if it is uncontrolled.  
Through the production of bamboo chopsticks, Yamachiku aims to create a sustainable society that will last forever. Their goal is to grow bamboo while managing it, to use the bamboo as chopsticks and other daily necessities, and to distribute the profits to the people who will be involved in the future maintenance of bamboo forests.
