Traditional masu box is made from cypress (hinoki) wood and handmade by Ogaki craftsmen of Gifu Prefecture for CREATION Project 2020. Masu were traditionally used to measure grain in the calculation of an annual tribute. Cypress has a natural anti-bacterial, anti-fungal property and a pleasant scent.

Do not use detergent. Do not put in dishwasher. Dark liquids (coffee, red wine) may stain the wood. Not for use with hot liquids.
