The area about 20km northwest of downtown Kyoto is called the Kitayama district.
Kitayama Cedar is a brand Cedar that has a history of about 600 years and is used as a building material for tea rooms and Sukiya that support the "Cha-no-yu" culture completed by Sen no Rikyu.

The characteristics are the beauty of the wood surface and the fineness of the annual rings.
These chopsticks are made by making the best use of the beautiful candy-colored wood surface of the polished log, which is also the representative of Kitayama Cedar, and are finished in a design that you can feel the beauty of Kitayama Cedar at a glance.

These chopsticks have an appropriate edge at the tip of the chopsticks and have a thick finish, so noodles and hot pots are not slippery and you can pinch them without breaking tofu.
Ideal as chopsticks for noodles and hot pots.

Some people may be worried that unpainted Cedar chopsticks may be colored by food, but it's surprisingly okay if you wash dark-colored items such as ramen immediately.
However, squid ink is NG.
If you have a dark color like squid ink, or if you are worried about coloring over time, lightly rub it with sandpaper sold at 100% and it will be clean immediately.
Since Cedar is soft, we recommend a finishing file of # 400 or higher.

It will last longer if you apply a dry oil such as walnut oil, sesame oil, or flaxseed oil.
Olive oil, palm oil, castor oil, etc. are non-drying oils and are not recommended as they will be sticky even if applied.

In addition, Cedar has the property that it can be discharged immediately even if it absorbs water, so it dries immediately after washing.
In the past, it was used as a material for wooden ships in some production areas due to its properties.


Please refrain from using items that get hot, such as dishwashers, dryers, and microwave ovens, and items that are easily scratched, such as scrubbing brushes and cleansers. increase.

Immediately after cleaning, wipe off any water droplets and lay it on its side in a well-ventilated place to dry it.
If you stand it up and dry it, the bottom part will turn black easily.

Please refrain from using it in situations where high temperatures continue, such as for teppanyaki or for picking chopsticks in a hot pot while it is still on the fire.
