This bamboo futaoki (ladle and lid rest) is shaped for Ro use, and is made entirely from Japanese bamboo. Bamboo futaoki for the ro (炉) season tend to be wider than those for furo and have the node closer to the middle of the piece. Due to the organic nature of bamboo and handmade utensils, there will be slight variations in size and appearance.

Suikaen is headed by Yasaburo Tanimura (谷村弥三郎), a 25th generation chasen maker who has carried on his family's 500 year old tradition and is one of the only 18 remaining chasen masters. These whisks are made from locally grown bamboo in the small village of Takayama (高山) in northwest Nara prefecture, famed as the only chasen making village in Japan.

A futaoki (蓋置 - lid rest) is a small stand used to hold the lid of the kama or for resting the hishaku on. They are typically made of bamboo, ceramic, or metal, and come in a vast array of shapes and styles. While metal and ceramic futaoki can be quite ornate and are considered more formal, the common and basic bamboo types are largely undecorated and are the least formal style.

Please note: this listing is for one futaoki and does not come with the Suikaen bamboo ladle pictured.
