Japanese people prefer light weight chopsticks. Our exclusive chop sticks, which can be found in various luxury restaurants in Tokyo, are made of fresh wood without any chemical treatment.
Most wooden chopsticks world-wide are made of chemically washed wood waste. While the usage of wood waste might serve the conservation of the environment, the chemicals on the surface can have negative health effects as proven by many studies.
For environmental reasons, we kindly request our guests to keep their chop sticks between courses.
