This storage box is suitable for storing your hashi (chopsticks).
High-quality Japanese chopsticks and hashioki: In Japanese food culture, in contrast to Europe, hardly any forks and knives are used, and especially chopsticks. These chopsticks are called hashi in Japanese, the accompanying coasters are called Hashioki (literally: chopstick rest). You can find them on almost every table in Japan. After use, place the chopsticks on the hashioki; this prevents them from coming into contact with the table or falling. Chopsticks are placed in front parallel to the edge of the table, with the point to the left (for right-handed people). The core of a Japanese chopstick is made of wood or bamboo. It is either covered with a thin, transparent layer of varnish or elaborately refined with several layers of colored varnish.
