Hyozaemon was established in Obama, Fukui Prefecture, the birthplace of Wakasa-nuri chopsticks, in 1921.
Hyozaemon chopsticks are made entirely by hand using natural materials.
Chopsticks in Japan are considered as a type of food because they go in your mouth, the tips of the chopsticks are made from virgin urushi lacquer, which contain no synthetic chemical paints whatsoever.
We continue to produce safe and secure chopsticks!
Mount Fuji, with its broad shape, gives us a sense of an optimistic future associated with prosperity in offspring and business success.
Furthermore, Fuji is linked to concepts of "immortality" and "safety," making it symbolize health, longevity, well-being, and family security. Additionally, as in the saying "Cranes live for a thousand years, tortoises live for ten thousand years," cranes symbolize longevity.
Hold them in your hand and feel the warmth of the attention to detail and craftsmanship.
