Creating ‘Excitement’ via Chopsticks

Nestled in Fukui Prefecture, Obama City boasts a unique coastal charm along the Japan Sea's sole ria coast. Blessed with abundant local ingredients, this culinary haven has a rich history of supporting imperial court cuisine. The traditional craft of "Wakasa paint" has been cherished for nearly 400 years, originating in the Edo period. 

Inspired by the breathtaking seabed of Wakasa Bay, this craft has evolved from a luxury item for samurai and merchants to exquisitely painted chopsticks known for their durability and beauty. Today, over 70% of Japan's painted chopsticks hail from Obama, making the chopstick industry a cornerstone of the city's identity and economy.

Brand History

Meet Matsukan, the go-to chopstick producer hailing from Obama City, Fukui Prefecture - a prominent hub for lacquered chopstick production rooted in Wakasa lacquerware traditions. Established in 1922 in the heart of Kitashioya, Obama City, they've been perfecting the art of chopstick crafting for over a century.

Capturing the 'excitement' of those who use them. Harvesting 'excitement' from the artisans. Brimming with 'excitement' from their dedicated team. Radiating 'excitement' from their charming town. They don’t just aim to create chopsticks; they endeavor to explore the endless possibilities of this essential element on the Japanese dining table.
