About our Japanese Chabako Box
- We are proud to partner with Yasushi Yokoo, an expert on Japanese washi scroll and screen construction to provide you with an elegant hand-crafted box which preserves an ancient tradition. Washi is a paper crafted by highly skilled Japanese artists trained in techniques perfected during the Edo era (1603-1868). After the creamy washi paper is created, a background pattern of ripples and cherry blossoms is hand printed and sprinkled with silver and gold leaf squares. Finally, the washi is carefully attached to the handmade Paulownia box. This style of air tight box, made from lightweight wood of the Paulownia tree, was originally used hundreds of years ago to protect and store precious hanging scrolls, paintings, and prints. We hope you enjoy the elegance and grace of this special box, made with the skills passed down and refined over hundreds of years.

Our chocolates are handcrafted in small batches from all-natural and, when possible, local and organic ingredients.
For optimal freshness and flavor, please enjoy your chocolates within 10 days.
Store your chocolates in a cool, dry place between 64-68°F (14-16°C) and out of direct sunlight.
To avoid blooming, please do not place your chocolates in the refrigerator.
While we generally advise against refrigerating chocolates, there may be some instances like heat and humidity where refrigeration is the only way to maintain the integrity of your chocolates. If you do need to store your confections in the refrigerator, we recommend protecting them by placing the box inside two airtight plastic bags, air removed and fully sealed. Stored in this way, we recommend enjoying refrigerated confections within 1 month. When enjoying refrigerated chocolates, we suggest keeping the box inside the two sealed plastic bags until the entire package comes to room temperature; this process will take approximately two hours.
