A hand-made Tofu Kit with natural, timeless aesthetic makes this a cherished item for those that appreciate home-made tofu.

Daidokoro (kitchen) is a series from Youbi (Yamacoh) that offers a wonderful presentation and stellar design for classically Japanese kitchen items. 

This Wappa Seiro Tofu Kit comes in an attractive Paulownia box (perfect for a gift) and includes the tofu steamer, steamer drop lid, bamboo base, 2 four pack pouches of bittern, 2 cloth sheets and a pamphlet with an overview of the product.

The included pamphlet with directions for making tofu is in Japanese. A translator app may be necessary.

The Dantsuki Seiro Pot  with the Steam Ring works perfectly with the Tofu Maker. 

A Seiro is a type of steamer made from wood. Japanese Seiros are usually made of Cedar or Cypress (Hinoki), while Chinese steamers are made from Bamboo. The two types of steamers serve the same function. They work very well at uniformly heating and cooking a wide variety of items. A Seiro is an essential tool for steamed buns, or Bao. But there are many uses for a Seiro, including reheating rice, which gives wonderful results. A steam cloth is recommended for easy cleanup. 

A Wappa Seiro (Magewappa) utilizes a traditional steam-bending woodcraft technique, which began generations ago in Odate, Akita Prefecture, and creates a truly unique and beautiful piece. The main body of the vessel is formed from a single sheet of wood and wrapped into a cylinder. Additional pieces are added, depending on the use.  

Yamacoh, founded in 1972, is based in Natsugawa, Gifu Prefecture, specializes in natural wooden products. Their Youbi brand can be described as ‘functional beauty.’ Youbi’s wood products are primarily made from Japanese Cypress, Hinoki and Sawara. These skilled craftsmen produce refined products that are delicately lined, with smooth beautiful surfaces.
