Yatsuyanagi's tea canister features a beautiful cherry blossom motif inlaid with shell accents on its glossy brown surface made of cherry bark from Akita Prefecture. The inside of the canister is also made of cherry bark, utilizing traditional techniques.
Wild cherry bark possesses moisture-regulating and antibacterial properties that help maintain the freshness and flavor of the tea leaves stored inside.
The wild cherry trees used in Akita cherry bark work are primarily sourced from the Tohoku region, where they grow in harsh conditions, resulting in their renowned durability and beauty.
Yatsuyanagi carefully peels the cherry bark from the tree trunk and allows it to dry in the shade for one to two years to remove any excess moisture. The company is dedicated to preserving the sustainable nature and co-existence of traditional crafts and nature, actively planting wild cherry trees in fallow land.
Located in Kakunodate, Senboku City, Akita Prefecture, Yatsuyanagi has been crafting and selling wild cherry bark products since 1876. They combine their inherited craftsmanship with advanced technology to create beautiful and functional daily tools, each made with care and attention to detail.
