Miyajima Kogei Seisakusho

Miyajima Kogei Seisakusho manufactures wooden kitchen tools in Miyajima, Hiroshima Prefecture. Yamazakura (Mountain Cherry Tree), which is mainly produced in the northern region of Hiroshima Prefecture, is used as the raw material for the ladles. Yamazakura is produced in the rich mountainous area near Miyajima, which make high-quality materials accessible and at a reasonable price. The wood is hard and elastic, so it can withstand long-term use. With regular use the wood ages to a beautiful reddish colour. Thanks to the natural materials, the Shamoji (rice paddle) does not exude chemical odour but bring out subtle aroma of wood, which encourage deliciousness of rice and side dishes. Miyajima Kogei Seisakusho is dedicated to creating durable, functional tools that can be used without hesitation.
