Yoshitani TONGI Cypress Tongs
TONGI Cypress Tongs:
Embracing the natural scent of Japanese Cypress
From Yoshitani Mokkosho, since 1910:
Japanese people have long appreciated the presence of nature in all aspects of life. They have cultivated harmonious relationships with nature, and believe that Gods dwell in everything.
This harmony birthed the concept of 'Shiturae'; welcoming the higher being with gratitude, prayer, and hospitality with every season, and stage of life. We believe that holding a heart of gratitude, and devoting our attention to everything visible and invisible, enriches and lights up our lives.
By bridging modern technology and the traditional culture, we want to carry Sanbou that we have mastered over 111 years, to the next generations, and unite precious hearts that Japanese people have cherished since the ancient times.
How to care for your TONGI:
Wash only with water. The material may naturally expand after washing; it is advisable to tie it with a rubber band to keep its shape, or soak it in water and lightly bend it back to shape.
Please be cautious, the tong may break if it is bent whilst dry.
