Chopsticks

Obama is not only the name of a president of the United States, it is also a renowned chopstick manufacturing town in Fukui prefecture in Japan. For over four centuries, lacquer chopsticks have been created in this town, earning it a reputation for producing the hardest and most beautiful Japanese lacquer chopsticks in the world. 

 

The distinctive style and skill used to create these renowned chopsticks became known as ‘Wakasa-nuri’. Hashikura Matsukan is a manufacturer who continues Obama’s traditional manufacturing technique of lacquered chopsticks to this day. Please do not rely on throw-away chopsticks, these beautiful Japanese lacquer chopsticks can actually make your food taste better.
