A gift set of lucent and luxurious chopsticks and “Hagoita” (Japanese battledore) chopstick rests with a rabbit on it.

The pattern on the chopsticks is a cherry blossom, also famous for Japan's national flower, and symbolizes prosperity and abundance due to the sight of cherry blossoms blooming all at once. 

The lacquer is applied on chopsticks, giving them a smooth touch on the hand. Wakasa lacquerware is heavily resistant to water and heat, making them hard to break in everyday use. The tip has a non-slip finish that makes it easy to hold food. 

The technique brings out the lacquer-covered patterns, creating a distinctively elegant piece bursting with artistic character. They are dishwasher safe.
