 In Japan, this exquisitely handcrafted container with matching lid, all made of the finest-quality sawara cypress wood, is traditionally used to hold cooked rice. But give free rein to your imagination, and you'll discover this beautiful set can alternately be used in infinite ways, for holding foods of every variety -- or, in addition to food, even non-edible items that will seem all the more precious when stored in true Japanese style. What's especially amazing is the unique way the container unit is constructed. The outer vertical "wall" and inner horizontal "base" are crafted to fit so perfectly together that the container will never leak. Two hoops fabricated from copper provide the necessary strength to keep it all together, while simultaneously adding an eye-catching touch. No nails or glue are used. The same construction is used for the matching lid. With this unique item on your table or elsewhere in your home, your guests are sure to comment on its beauty -- and on your fine taste in choosing it. HAND MADE IN JAPAN
