Here you'll find a collection of some of the best Japanese made chopsticks. Most of our Japanese Chopsticks are made in Obama, Japan, which produces 80% of all chopsticks manufactured in Japan following centuries of tradition and craftsmanship.

Some of the best Japanese made chopsticks

Japanese chopsticks are typically about 9 inches long, gracefully tapering from handle to tip. In Japan they are called "Hashi" which means bridge. This category has many fine Japanese-made, authentic chopsticks not specific to a specialized craftsman style.

Most chopsticks made in Japan are made in Obama, Japan

Amazingly, Obama (yes, same name as our former President) is a small town of only 32,000 people. A century ago there were more than a hundred masters and their families making chopsticks. Today, there only about ten Japanese chopstick makers.
