It is called "summer selection peaceful seal ochugen" by MINDWAVE (Chūgen (中元), also Ochūgen (お中元), is an annual event in Japan on the 15th day of the 7th lunar month, when people give gifts to their superiors and acquaintances. One of the three days that form the sangen (三元?) of Daoism, it is sometimes considered a Zassetsu in the Japanese calendar. Originally it was an annual event for giving gifts to the ancestral spirits.)

These are perfect for scrapbooking, card making or any project you can think of!

Sushi Mold




Create perfectly shaped nigiri sushi easily every time. There are 5 non stick cavities...just fill with warm rice, put the lid on and press and then pop them out. Add a bit of wasabi on top and then your choice of fish.

There are instructions on the back.

Please wash by hand.


Japanese Furniture Tansu Drawer Front




This is stunning! This is a drawer front from a tansu furniture (Japanese set of drawers). It is in Meiji Period (1868~) and made of Japanese cedar ("Sugi" in Japanese). There is a diamond shape metal work near the keyhole (family crest of family who owned this furniture). It is lacquered . It combined sophisticated style with the highest quality craftsmanship and finest materials to create it. 

There is a lock but no key. There are scratches on the wood and there is rust on the metal but I think it just adds to the charm of it. There are also holes that you can see on the back. They go through to the front but are basically covered by the lock.


We will combine shipping if you buy from any of our stores.

It measures 27 x 23.8 x 2 cm. Given the size, this must be shipped EMS express shipping (which includes both insurance and tracking) .


***********Please look at the pictures carefully and notice the imperfections. 

Please note-if you buy this along with other items, I will weigh the package and refund the extra shipping. Because of the size of this, it is extremely difficult to set a "buy this with another item" price. Thanks for understanding. If you have any questions, please ask. :)

Kashigata Sugar Cake Molds, Hand Curved, Wooden




This is a vintage mold called "kashigata". This is a beautiful Japanese vintage wood sweets mold. 

Often made of sakura (cherry wood) and seasoned for about 3 years before carving, kashigata were used to make dried confectionery made of rice flour and sugar called rakugan. Earliest records show that this practice dates back to the mid-17th century. These confections were used as offerings and snacks for celebratory occasions and even unfortunate events. For example when a person died, it was expensive to give flowers or fresh food so, people made these sweets in the form of flowers, fish etc. These items were then placed on the "butsudan" (family shrine found in the house) for the dead person.


Kashigata were also used in the making of wagashi (nama-gashi or freshly made cake and hi-gashi or dried confectionery) for tea ceremonies.
