A wondrous, auspicious upward-facing daruma chopsticks & Echizen-yaki chopsticks set!
It carries many auspicious meanings: Place them down and the upward facing design will increase your luck and improve results/performance. Also, as it stands up and doesn't fall down, it brings success in test passing and selection. Just like a self-righting doll, it helps you stand back up again when life has knocked you down. Also, this idea of "rising" also relates to health and longevity, and not being bedridden and, as it returns to normal, recovering from illness and safe travel.

The chopsticks are made using Fukui eyeglass manufacturing techniques which are over 100 years old. With weight inserted appropriately to great a good weight balance and ease of use. Also, the upward facing design makes for an auspicious pair of chopsticks. The thumb fits into the indentation on the holding area, creating a natural and beautiful holding position. Also, the tips are non-slip processed. The chopstick rest is Echizen-yaki, one of the Nihon Rokkoyo - 6 ancient kilns in Japan. It is a handmade item by the young traditional craftsman Katsuyuki Sokura with the daruma's face drawn using laser light.
