This handicraft leverages the natural beauty of Yakusugi cedar, which has long been revered as sacred by the people of Yakushima Island. Cutting down live Yakusugi cedar trees has been banned, so the vast majority of Yakusugi cedar used today comes from ""domaiboku,"" which refers to the stumps of trees felled during the Edo period. The shop exhibits chopsticks, accessories, plates, pots, and other woodcrafts that capitalize on the beautiful wood grain and the appealing decayed appearance of Yakusugi cedar. It is also possible to try your hand at carving a pair of chopsticks out of thousand-year-old Yakusugi cedar (age 11 and up)."

Kagoshima Areas

around-area-map

Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture's most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
