Ohashi Ryoki Ltd


For over 1300 years, the Masu has played an important role in Japanese tradition. Originally a measuring cup for foods such as rice and soy sauce, the Masu was used to measure rice when it was commonly used as a form of currency. For the Japanese people, the Masu was as valuable and important as the rice it contained. All the Masu products are made from Japanese cypress, better known as Hinoki, is regarded as a great luxury in Japan. Famous for its crisp fragrance as well as its versatility as building material, Hinoki is a favourite choice for hot spring baths. The Japanese Cypress has been the wood of choice for the construction of ancient works of architecture such as the Horyuji Temple, the oldest wooden structure known to date. No trees are cut specifically for the purpose of making the products. They are made from recycling wood that did not meet building material standards because of its shape or size, and the craftsmen make each product with all their heart and soul.

Traditional Masu Box: Simple yet elegant, your imagination is the limit when it comes to using this versatile product. Masu is not only used for measuring rice, but is also used for sake and as a memento for celebrations. These Masu are smaller size than regular Masu, easier to hold and to consume a small amount of sake at a time. It is a lovely choice for home drinking with family or friends.

Kotobuki Tsumugi Workshop

Traditional Japanese Oshima Tsumugi Silk Pongee

Oshima Tsumugi is a traditional handicraft silk fabric and is hailed as one of the three great textiles in the world, alongside Persian carpets and Gobelin tapestries. In the old days, the spun silk thread was dyed with mud and plain weave to make a piece of silk cloth. Nowadays, beautiful yarn made by twisting sericulture silk yarn is used. 

The process of making Oshima Tsumugu is a very complicated and tedious process involving 30 steps. However, its finished product makes it the most sought-after fabric to make Kimono to be passed down from generations to generations. The pattern of Oshima Tsumugi is created by pre-dying the yarn to be woven so that it becomes a pattern, and weaving it without any deviation by tsumugi artisans. Unfortunately, factors like westernized clothing and lack of inheritance of the artisan skills, the manufacturing of Oshima Tsumugi textile is a declining traditional craft. To promote the trade, the traditional textile is utilized in modern accessories like name card holders, neck tie, etc. Don’t miss the opportunity to marvel at the actual authentic Oshima Tsumugi textile at the event!
