Ryobi-an seeks to enrich their customer’s lifestyles through their Akita cedar crafts which combine traditional techniques with new ideas. While they still offer traditional magewappa bento boxes, some of their more contemporary creations include bread cases, wine coolers, and cake domes.
Although Ryobi-an was only established in December of 2017, the techniques and knowledge behind this craft date back to the Edo period. Passionate about magewappa, founder Mr. Ishikura, who worked for another magewappa company for 30 years, has undertaken the challenge to create brand-new, never-seen-before magewappa items that young people can pass on to future generations. Joining him on this mission is the talented Ms. Tomoko Ito, the first woman to have been certified as an Odate Magewappa Traditional Craftsperson.
