Paper Mache Lighthouse and Setouchi Sanbon Set

tax included

This set includes a lighthouse-shaped paper mache and Setouchi Sanbon, a type of wasanbon that allows you to enjoy two types of sugar, Sanuki and Awa. Also recommended as a gift.
The HIYORI original "lighthouse" lidded container that evokes the scenery of the Setouchi region has a design that blends in well with modern rooms. Each paper mache is made by hand using handmade washi paper from ancient documents and other sources, and its warm, soft form will make you feel attached to it just by looking at it.

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.

Paper tigers have been made at a paper mache workshop in Mitoyo City, Kagawa Prefecture since 1897, and were designated as a traditional craft of Kagawa Prefecture in 1986. They are made by hand, with careful consideration given to the materials and techniques used, with the aim of "making tigers that are durable and can be loved for a long time."
They have long been used as decorations for Boys' Festival and Hassaku Festival, in hopes of children's healthy growth. They are popular as local toys, birthday gifts, housewarming gifts, and lucky charms for business prosperity.

◯About Wasanbon
The "polishing" process is unique to Wasanbon.
This is how the particles are made finer. It is polished three times on a tray. This is where the name Wasanbon comes from. Even though the production methods are similar, the attention to detail in various processes, such as the polishing method and the weight and time of the pusher, is reflected in the product, and the taste differs depending on the sugar refinery. Wasanbon is made with a lot of time and effort. Try comparing it with the sugar you normally use.
