We found these Handmade Folk Parquet Chopsticks in the small post-towns called Tsumago & Magome, we carried them with us along some of the Nakasendo trail. Featuring dark wood and parquet detailing each set offers a slightly different design.
*Each set is unique and may differ slightly from the design pictured.
On our latest trip to Japan, we stopped by little backstreet markets, cute kitchenware stores, antique vintage shops and small family run businesses to find a selection of unique often one of a kind pieces.
Along the Nakasendo trail.
