Rice Bin (5kg)

Rice Bin (5kg)


This rice bin is a staple in every Japanese kitchen for storing not only rice but also other dry food. Made from "Kiri" or paulownia wood, the rice bin is hand joined out of solid wood, without screws or nails. Kiri is a fine grained, lightweight and warp-resistant wood, good for keeping out humidity and insects. As a result, Kiri was traditionally used for making boxes and containers to store valuables such as fine edge tools, kimonos and precious objects. 

The Rice Bin comes with a masu (枡升), a rice measuring cup.
