Great for storage and preservation of rice, the box has a timeless, natural wood appearance.

The wonderful, soft feel of the Paulownia wood has a rustic quality to it that serves a useful function. Paulownia, or Kiri wood, is a natural insect repellent and is a porous wood that manages moisture very well. It’s no wonder why Kiri wood has been used for preservation for countless generations. 

The production of this box takes place in Kasukabe City, in Saitama Prefecture. This area, famous for Kiri wood crafts, constructs the rice chest using no nails or metal fittings. Built by master craftsmen, the fit and finish is outstanding. 

The box features a sliding door, rice cup for measuring and a removable top for restock and cleaning. 

Azmaya, a Tokyo based company, has been operating since 1997. Azmaya collaborates with designers, artisans and small local manufacturers to create tools and crafts for everyday living. The company offers many items with the traditional Japanese aesthetic in mind. 

It’s recommended to wipe the box with a damp cloth before use. Please avoid using excess water and detergent, as well as direct sunlight, which may damage or warp the wood.
