Roof Town Tableware

The Roof Town Tableware set consists of wooden decorations that look wonderful on a tabletop or mantle. Ochiya products are a modern reimagining of the traditional crafts of Hiraizumi, an area that was designated in 2011 by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Hiraizumi is particularly well known for its lacquerware. In addition to more traditional items such as bowls, plates and chopsticks, Ochiya also makes highly contemporary items such as iPhone and iPad covers, as well as fountain pens and wine glasses. The appearance of these tabletop accessories was inspired by the Hiraizumi townscape, but there is no single correct way to arrange your Roof Town Tableware. Configure the various pieces however you like.
