Cafe Japan's CHOPSTICKS カフェジャパンのお箸 第2弾


We thank you very much for your patronage. This is the information about the small present from Café Japan. Though we did the same campaign last December, it has been out of stock! We have ordered again the shop and just arrived.

In Japan, it is usual to have one’s own pair of HASHI (chopsticks) at home and to use the same one everyday. Recently it has become very popular to carry one’s own hashi for use at the restaurant or at the office, instead of using disposable chopsticks. We call them ‘My HASHI.’ This idea comes from ecology and is designed to present waste and save trees, even though disposable chopsticks are also recycled in Japan.

Café Japan is also sending a lot of chopsticks everyday to the customers. From the trend to have one’s portable chopsticks, we’ve come up with the idea of making original HASHI (chopsticks) for the regular customers and giving them to you. When you place a food order, we will deliver HASHI according to your order instead of disposable chopsticks. Afterwards we will not send disposable chopsticks except on your special request.

We ordered the original HASHI (chopsticks) from a shop in Wajima city, Japan, which is famous for lacquered crafts and tableware. They have written on them “Café Japan” in Japanese characters and in gold ink. We have 15 colours (last time 10 colours though) with WABI SABI taste. Black, Dark Chocolate, Violet, Dark Red, Red, Emerald Green, Light Blue, Light Pink, Brilliant Green, Moss Green, Yellow Green, Orange red, Red bean, Rose gray, Peach(from the bottom). Japanese Chopsticks have sharper points than Chinese and Korean style chopsticks and you can enjoy the difference. This shop’s chopsticks have a rough surface on the point to prevent them from slipping.

We welcome you to request your favorite colours when you place the order, though we have limited numbers of each. We would like you to use them at your home and office and hope you will like them.

I find this to be very interesting. As a displaced intellectual/writer, I do not have the money for such things. But I hope my readers will come here and buy them.
