[Azmaya's Ohitsu]

An ohitsu solely the precious straight-grained wood of Kiso sawara cypress of more than 100 years old. Kiso sawara cypress has outstanding water-resistance, and straight-grained wood, especially, has high absorbency.

The ohitsu absorbs any excess moist of steaming rice, drawing out the original taste and sweetness of rice, giving out its aroma and creating a moderate texture.

Further, Kiso sawara cypress is highly resistant to acid, and thus, a very suitable material for dining tables using vinegar.
