Handmade Tea Canister
Handmade tea canisters made by Kato Seisakusho, made with skilled craftsmanship. The tea canisters are carefully molded and painted by hand one by one, and unlike ordinary printed canisters, they have a rich color and a sense of taste. The illustration is by YUYA, a paper cutting artist/illustrator. The simple yet warm style of the work adds color to your life. The seagulls and sun, which are also the logo of HIYORI WASANBON, have become a wonderful illustration.

*Due to the nature of handmade painted canisters, there may be some scratches or chips on the print. Please note that there may also be some paint blown into the gap between the lid and the body.


Setouchi Sanbon
Compare the taste of Sanuki Wasanbon and Awa Wasanbon. One packet contains two types of wasanbon: Sanuki Wasanbon (white) and Awa Wasanbon (brown). Did you know that the taste and color of wasanbon varies depending on the sugar factory? Setouchi Sanbon is a simple yet profound product made by shaping two historic wasanbon sugars into cubes: white Sanuki Wasanbon made by a long-established sugar factory in Kagawa Prefecture, and brown Awa Wasanbon made by a long-established sugar factory in Tokushima Prefecture.
