Story & Recommendation
Long-lasting, durable, easy-to-use bamboo chopsticks
Ninenzaka is the area near Kiyomizu Temple where you will find a line of souvenir shops. This shop is located in the corner. It sells bamboo chopsticks and other small bamboo items. The bamboo chopsticks made by craftsman are very special—lightweight but not slippery, and they all sell for only ¥1,050 or less, but last a long time. In addition, the kitchen chopsticks are a popular item, even among professional cooks. We hope that you will find your favorite chopsticks here, and then use them when enjoying Japanese Cuisine.

How to buy

how to buy - kameyamaStarting with bamboo chopsticks, we recommend that you choose products that you have actually picked up and felt. This is because even when chopsticks are made with the same bamboo, their feel can differ markedly depending on their shape. If you can’t tell the difference even when picking them up, then choose the item with a color and pattern that please you.

- Shopping Tips -
Bamboo products should not be washed in the dishwasher, but washed by hand. They will last longer if you also dry them immediately after washing.
