HASHIOKI (chop stick rests)

HASHIOKI are chopstick rests. They make a table setting a bit more formal. They come in all shapes and sizes. They can be made plain, ornate or fanciful. They can be made in ceramic, lacquer, wood or washi paper.

               Top: Five little roosters
           Bottom:  The always popular "Maneki neko" is portrayed here as peas in a pod.
                I love this set. It is fanciful.

                                    These are Koda YAKI by the Agano Kiln.
