Yamada in Teradomari, Niigata Prefecture, a region adjacent to the Sea of Japan, is home to the union of the sieve industry since the Edo period, and products such as a sieve, tea strainer, and steaming basket were actively produced.

Adachi Shigehisa Shoten inherits the history of Yamada and has now become the only long-established workshop of round wooden chip boxes in Niigata Prefecture. Their seiro (steaming basket) persistently follows the traditional production procedure. Adachi Shigehisa Shoten continues to produce authentic products applying the inherited techniques.

Please enjoy the traditional techniques that live in our modern world at home.
