Sawara Cypress Edobitsu Sushi Rice Jar - Ohitsu 121 fl oz / 13" dia

96214

Sawara cypress is very similar to the Japanese cypress (hinoki) but its aroma is not as strong, making it suitable for storing sushi rice. It is a rough grain wood with a matte finish, and absorbs excess moisture from the rice to prevent sogginess, and make it the perfect texture for sushi. This hand made wooden sushi jar is both elegant and practical, and perfect for high end sushi bars.
