Elegant and Functional - The OHITSU Rice Bucket

Step into the world of refined kitchen elegance with the OHITSU, a traditional Japanese rice bucket that marries functionality with aesthetics. Carved out of eco-friendly Sawara cypress wood, this premium container is an indispensable treasure in your culinary collection.

High-Quality Premium Craftsmanship

Artisanal Excellence from Kiso Region: Every OHITSU rice bucket echoes the profound craftsmanship from the celebrated Kiso region of Japan. With each grain of wood, the artistry is evident, supplemented by a dignified copper tag that elevates its traditional charm.

Benefits of Hinoki Wood

The Superiority of Sawara Cypress: Not just a visual treat, the OHITSU offers tangible benefits stemming from its Sawara cypress constitution. This Hinoki wood variant ensures your rice remains fluffy and delightful, transcending the need for electric or plastic containers. Its inherent features also lend it an aromatic touch, making each meal a sensory experience. (Note: The lid isn't airtight, making it ideal for dry foods or as a distinctive alfresco dining container.)

Our Commitment to Sustainability

Eco-Conscious Choice: Beyond its stellar appearance and functionality, the OHITSU is a nod to our unwavering commitment to the environment. By harnessing sustainably sourced Sawara cypress wood, we provide you with a product that's both eco-friendly and durable, encapsulating our dedication to a greener planet.


Ensuring Longevity and Aesthetics Taking care of your OHITSU is straightforward:

  • Wood Resin Management: Natural resin can be gently removed using rubbing alcohol or slight sanding.
  • Hand Wash Recommended: The product isn't dishwasher-compatible. Cleanse using lukewarm water, pat dry, and allow it to air-dry in a shaded area.
  • Addressing Resin Exudation: If resin emerges, appearing yellow or sticky, don't be alarmed. It's a natural occurrence. Clean it using vinegar or sterilizing alcohol. Although some yellow remnants might persist, they won't harm the product's integrity.
  • Post-Usage Care: To keep it pristine, rinse with hot water after each use. Ensure thorough draining, wipe it down, and let it dry in a cool, well-ventilated area, away from direct sunlight.
