History (Origins)

Abundant quantities of high-quality bamboo grow in Nasunogahara—the area has produced bamboo goods since the Edo Period (1600–1868).

Characteristics (Techniques and Materials)

The bamboo material itself features excellent elasticity and an enchanting luster. To these, artisans add their own designs and modifications to achieve delicate beauty amidst an elegantly simple overall look.
