This gift set includes Wakasa lacquerware chopsticks with Chrysanthemum seals and chopstick rests shaped in "shishimai." This pair of Wakasa lacquerware chopsticks are made with traditional Wakasa lacquer by grinding away many thin layers of materials like color lacquer, eggshell, and seashell to reveal patterns. The Chrysanthemum seal is the crest of the Japanese Emperor's family and has long been believed to ward off evil spirits and preserve longevity in Japan. Often seen as a lucky charm, shishimai is perfect for New Year's Day, as well as for celebrations and other special occasions. A wish for a long and healthy life is embedded in the gift set. The mouth of the shishimai is designed to open.
