Needed to buy a birthday gift for a friend so stopped by Nihonbo Chopstick Store in Hiroo. Nihonbo has thousands of chopsticks (Hashi) from everyday to special occasion. You can even have the chopsticks personalized with your name engraved. I have been a loyal fan of this store since children need the right size chopsticks to help them eat properly. In the past I’ve also bought the cute wooden rice bowl and chopsticks as baby presents. The staff is incredibly kind and very knowledgeable on all the merchandise. Ended by buying a beautiful pair of adult chopsticks for the birthday gift (very useful) and a new pair of Baby since her hands have grown so much the last six months. My opinion is if you are taking time to study Japanese food, shop and cook you should have some beautiful chopsticks. Also don’t forget to pick-up some cute Hashi Oki (chopstick holders) while you are there.
Just my opinion
- Merchandise: One of the best and widest assortment of chopsticks that I have seen
- Price: 500 yen to very expensive
- Service: Very knowledgeable and freindly
- Giftwrap: Available for free, but need to ask
- Child friendliness: Not good if your kids want to touch all the chopsticks
