Starting with the larger bowl, the smaller ones are stacked completely on top of each other in order to allow for compact storage and carrying.
The charm of oryoki is, first of all, its compact storage. All the bowls fit inside the largest bowl, so even if you have a set of five layers, you won't have trouble finding a place to store them.
Another advantage is its durability. The oryoki which is made in Japan, is made of wood, making it is hard to break even if dropped, and its lacquer coating resists scratches and deterioration. Since oryoki was designed to be used by Buddhist practitioners for the rest of their lives, it is of course long-lasting for home use.
In addition, oryoki sets are easy to use as tableware: a single oryoki set can provide all the dishes for one person, making meal preparation simple.
