These black textured chopsticks have a floral washi paper design of cherry blossoms on a deep blue background. This beautiful chopstick’s design is inspired by Japanese history. "Edo" is the ancient name for Tokyo, and is also used to reference the Tokuwaga period (1603 to 1867). "Yozakura" or "night sakura" means Hanami. Hanami is an old and on going Japanese tradition to celebrate the coming of Spring. In the beginning, many would gather to view the "ume" (plum blossoms), but time went on the Sakura (cherry blossoms) attracted more attention. The custom was originally limited to the elite of the Imperial Court, but soon spread to samurai society and, by the Edo period, to the common people as well. These chopsticks are 9 inches long. Made in Japan.
