About 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.
About Japanese Wood Craft
In Japan, 70% of the land is covered with forests, and there are said to be as many as 200 species of trees, including coniferous trees such as cedar and cypress, and broad-leaved trees such as zelkova, chestnut, and horse chestnut, that are used for construction and woodworking. Japanese wood crafts are made by making the most of the characteristics of the wood from each production area. For example, bamboo crafts in Kyushu, Japanese cypress products in Gifu, and cedar products in Akita are famous.
Woodworking techniques developed along with tools, giving rise to a variety of woodworking techniques such as sashimono, carving, gouging, grinding, bending, and hooping. The skillful use of tools such as axes, machetes, planes, saws, chisels, and files in Japanese woodworking supports not only the lives of people but also the cultural heritage of temples and shrines. The elaborate techniques that have been cultivated over a long period of history are highly regarded around the world.
