Since 1972, Yamacoh Co. has sought to achieve unity between Japanese beauty and function. The Japanese word, youbi, translates to “functional beauty,” where the essential beauty of something is revealed through functional use.
Yamacoh woodenware products are made using Japanese woods such as Hinoki and Sawara (types of Japanese Cypress). The wood is known for its delicate lines and smooth surface. In the hands of skilled craftspeople, beauty and function come together.
Hinoki Cypress Homemade Tofu Kit
Experience the ancient traditional practice of creating fresh, homemade tofu with a Hinoki Cypress Tofu kit. Designed to make beautifully shaped tofu each time, the Hinoki Cypress tofu kit is as aesthetically pleasing as it is functional. The holes on the side allow for excess water to drain out while the tofu takes its shape. Tofu will take a whole new meaning from tasting the freshness of homemade tofu.
*You will need soy milk and nigari liquid as ingredients for making tofu. Nigari liquid can be found at some Japanese markets and specialty stores.
