Brand New.


Hakata Magemono is made from cedar or cypress boards that are bent with heat and then bound with cherry bark. (In Kanto, it is generally called "Magewappa.")

Since no metal is used, it lasts for a very long time depending on how well it is cared for, and it is very light.

In addition, magemono is full of wisdom from the old days, as it makes rice fluffy and does not damage the Bento food inside even if it is filled with rice while it is still warm.

The forms that have been perfected over hundreds of years have been refined in terms of design.

Magemono is used also as a rice chest or the containers for tea ceremony.

Tamaki is very innovative in the way she creates new concept or goods in the areas where they had not used magemono traditionally.   This item is also a proof of her innovative mind, providing a Bento box that is even used for sandwiches. 

Her challenge has also made it possible to gather information and unravel the real history about magemono in Japan through the network she helped establish.

<Tamaki Shibata>

The Shibata family of Tamaki has been making Kyokumono for more than 420 years since its establishment. Tamaki Shibata (real name Mariko), the 18th generation of the family, has taken on the challenge of making kyokumono that meet the needs of the times while continuing to carry on the traditional techniques.

Tamaki is not only a female craftswoman in a traditional craft world that is dominated by male society, but she is also the leader of a nationwide network of magemono artisans.

In addition to making magemono in her studio, she also gives demonstrations of magemono making to the general public every Thursday at the Hakata Machiya Furusato-kan, a museum of traditional Fukuoka culture.

How to use

- If you put hot rice in a bento box, please do not put the lid on the box immediately, but let the rice cool down a little before putting the lid on. (If you put the lid on immediately after filling it with hot rice, it may crack, depending on the grain of the wood.)
-After use, do not use a dishwasher, but wash in lukewarm water with a mild dishwashing detergent and sponge, then dry with a dry cloth and store.
-Avoid soaking in water for extended periods of time.
-Wood absorbs oil easily, so if you wish to use a silicon cup or glassine paper to hold oily side dishes such as fried or grilled fish, please use a silicon cup or glassine paper to prevent oil from coming into direct contact with the vessel.
