A set of traditional wooden Masu boxes with a simple, cuboid shape.
The elegant look represents the wisdom and skills of artisans.
The traditional wooden Masu box is a simple cuboid, which is a tool to measure volume accurately. The manufacturing process therefore requires extreme precision. First, four side boards are cut out in an exact way and assembled. After attaching the base, it is finished by shaving with a plane. Although it is processed mostly by machines, delicate work by hand is still necessary in many steps. Our artisans’ wisdom and skills are applied to the process of cutting the material to the exact size, assembling pieces, grinding, and polishing. In that way, our beautiful and functional Masu boxes are produced. A set includes an ichigo masu (180mL), a nigo masu (450mL), a gogo masu (900mL), and an issho masu (1800mL).
