  • White bamboo or sarashi-dake:A beautifully glossy brand bamboo that was selectively cut out between September and November to be scorched with fire in Kyoto's unique way to remove oil. Generally, bamboo from which oil has been removed is used to make bamboo handicrafts.There are two ways to remove oil from bamboo. One is called yunuki, which means boiling green bamboo in hot water to remove oil. The other is called hinuki, which means scorching green bamboo with fire to remove oil.The surface of hinuki-dake or the bamboo that has undergone hinuki is glossy and very beautiful. This hinuki-dake is usually used for bamboo handicrafts made in Kyoto. It makes a wonderful piece as combined with Kyoto's traditional sophisticated handicraft skills.

  • "Japanese bamboo culture" Bamboo exists closely to Japanese life, and it goes without saying that the Japanese have been using it as a tool for a long time. Bamboo also deeply influenced the traditional culture arts of tea ceremony and flower arrangement. Bamboo has the power to grow one meter a day and is seen to be green all year round. Because of its straight shape and flexibility, and the fact that people believed God was living inside of it, bamboo has been used as a plant that is mysterious and brings good luck for local traditional events. It is said that there are about 620 kinds of bamboo in Japan (1,350 kinds in the world). They are located between tropical and warm climate zones. Japan is the northern end in which bamboo can grow.Although Japanese bamboo is especially high quality and perfect for artifacts, the bamboo that can be used for artifacts is rarely found. Madake is one of the best bamboo for artifacts due to its flexibility, sturdiness and beautiful skin. Kurochiku, Hachiku, Torafutake, Nemagaritake and Mousouchiku are also used often. We could call Japan "a country of bamboo."
