The Oboro Shimmering Waters Wakasa chopsticks have subtle sparkling hand-painted colors of blues, greens and gold, dotted with mother of pearl. Finished with a gloss urethane protective finish. It was impossible for us to capture the beautiful, subtle sparkling colors in our photo. Chopsticks are 9.125 inches long with smooth, square tips. Hand made in Obama, Japan on the shores of Wakasa Bay.
