About 4 out of every 5 pairs of chop sticks made in Japan are made in the tiny town of Obama, Japan, with 33,000 people, which lies on the dazzling Wakasa bay. Wakasa pairs are often made of raw goods from nature to look like views of the ocean floor seen through the crystal clear waters of the bay. At one time there were more than 150 clans that manufactured chop sticks in Obama, Japan. Today there are only 9 masters remain. As their children choose other careers, these family shops are at risk of going away. If you still wish to see these finely crafted works of art, check out the Wakasa pairs and our information page about Wakasa chop stick art.
