Product Care

Made from sustainably farmed sugi (Japanese cedar) wood. Since the wood is treated just with a thin layer of Polyurethane paint on the outside of the box for its finish, some care should be taken with this box: 

  • Wash in lukewarm water.
  • Do not use dishwasher detergent unless absolutely necessary.
  • We recommend packing food that may stain the wood in a separate container, or in bento cups. Use a gentle sponge, nothing abrasive. 
  • Do not let it soak in cold or hot water for a long time.
  • After washing, wipe off any excess water with a soft cloth, then leave the box open to dry completely. Replace the lid only after it has completely dried out, after a day or so. 
  • Avoid metal cutlery.
  • Not dish-washer not microwave safe.
  • With proper care, this box will last for many years. 
  • Made in Japan, in Odate, Akita Prefecture.
