Description:
Kiri wood rice container to store your uncooked rice in a clean, natural, stack-able box. This container comes with a magnetic wooden scoop. Kiri wood or "Paulownia wood" is valued in Japan for its insect deterrent, anti-humidity, and heat resistance qualities.  Keep your rice nice and fresh in this beautiful wooden box.

Variation:
Due to the nature of the material and the wood grain of the natural wood, there are slight variations from box to box. 

History: 
Kiri wood has been used since the Edo period for making "kiribako" (kiri boxes). This simple and stack-able rice bin is made by Masuda Kiribako, a specialist shop founded in 1929. They specialize in making boxes like this one without the use of nails or screws.
