The ingredients start to dance as if they were magically applied.
Moreover, you can cook in a short time, and you can enjoy the taste of a first-class restaurant at home or at a camp.
Please try to get a lifelong charcoal pot that can be used semi-permanently.

I have repeated research and development for more than 20 years.
My father Masashi Sato was studying carbon cookware. Twenty years after my father started research, my father succeeded in making a pot made of carbon.
My father knew the high heat tradition rate of carbon and the characteristic of far infrared effect and he was convinced that the carbon material should be useful for cooking.
And he held a strong feeling that "I would like to disseminate carbon kitchen ware throughout the world." One time, my father met Mr.
Shintaro Katayama who is a Michelin single star chef now. And my father aimed to develop a high quality pot that satisfies the top chef.
However, only a few years after A finally completed, he died without watching the spread of carbon kitchen ware.
Mr. Shintaro Katayama continues to use carbon pot that developed with my father even now, and its delicious rice is the most popular menu in the shop.
Now I succeed in inheriting my father's will, commercialize and mass-produce carbon pots that had only a few in the world, and I am doing activities spreading to the whole world.
Masters of authentic Made in Japan
By repeating high-temperature firing over a period of three months or more, the carbon material used as a material eliminates impurities and increases the strength. Ultimately we will increase the quality to 99.9% carbon material perfect solid carbon material.
Carbon material can not be poured into molds or molded with ROKURO like other pot making and pottery.
For that reason, skilled craftsmen in Japan will shave them with elaborate 0.01 millimeter units.
As a result, the pan and the lid are combined without insanity, and anhydrous cooking is also possible.
Born in craftsmen's manual work, the HOMUSUBI series is a simple design that gets rid of waste. Although it looks heavy at first glance, it is also lighter compared to the clay pot as it is a carbon material.
It has high durability and can be used semipermanently, so there is no need to replace it.
The HOMUSUBI series is a product that stuck to all made in Japan, such as manufacturing, cutting out, finishing, packaging (paulownia wrapper, furoshiki)
Functionality recognized by Michelin star chef ~ that taste, the domain of God ~
HOMUSUBI series sticks to usability as well.
Utilizing the far infrared ray effect and high thermal conductivity characteristic of the carbon material, rice can be cooked in half the time of the pot.
In the charcoal series, rice which cooked evenly, with only one solid fuel in just 15 minutes cooks up rice quickly.
In addition, high quality fluorine processing has been applied to the inside of the pot which was said to be difficult for carbon.
As a result, the ingredients will not scorch and the cleaning up can be shortened. p>
Actually, I'm particular about packaging.
The paulownia box which puts the commodity is very beautiful in traditional craftwork of Kanazawa. In addition, I wrapped the paulownia wrapped in a wrapping cloth made by Japanese traditional craftsmen with Japanese paper. Amazingly, I use the same washi for the cushioning material of corrugated cardboard. Let's get the Finest Japanese Pot.

How Japanese Products Can Be Such High Quality
The Reason Japan Can Produce So Many High-Quality Products
To put it simply, it’s because they found a way to produce exceptional products with high efficiency, resulting in surprisingly low prices.
The Japanese Drive for Perfection
The Japanese always seek perfection in both the production process and the products themselves.
As such, the Japanese production process aims to eliminate waste and inefficiencies while guaranteeing quality by having craftspeople inspect their own products and constantly strive to make improvements.
Ingenuity Stemming from the Spirit of “Omotenashi” and “Kikubari”
The Japanese excel at creating and improving things because of their devotion to the ideas of hospitality and attentiveness, known as “omotenashi” and “kikubari” respectively. These ideas push them to uncover, predict, and fulfill their customers’ every need.
This earnestness, as well as how they spare no effort when it comes to offering their customers the very best, is reflected in the products Japan produces.
Trustworthy Suppliers That Deliver On All Fronts
One product is often the result of various organizations joining forces and combining their skills and capabilities.
Japanese suppliers are known for their dedication to delivering high-quality materials, parts, and products on schedule, and it’s thanks to their efforts that Japan can produce such high-quality goods.
The Japanese Are the World’s Most Discerning and Demanding Customers
Many Japanese people have traveled and experienced shopping around the world. This has given them a much more discerning eye for judging the quality of products.
The standards of Japanese people are very high. They are finely tuned not just to the quality, safety, design, and novelty of products, but also to their visual appearance such as their packaging and wrapping.
Made-in-Japan products keep improving in quality in order to meet the rigorous standards of their domestic clientele.
Japan Is Home to Many Long-Established Companies
According to an international survey, Japan has the highest number of companies that have been established over a century ago. In fact, the grand total of 33,076 of such Japanese companies accounts for 41.3% of the total worldwide number of 80,066. The US takes second place with 19,497 companies (24.4%) and Sweden comes in third with 13,997 (17.5%).
Japan also has the highest number of companies that are more than two centuries old, being home to 1,340 such companies, which account for 65.0% of the global total of 2,051. The US takes second place with 239 companies (11.6%), Germany comes in third with 201 (9.8%), and the UK places fourth with 83 (4.0%).
So, Japan is able to produce so many high-quality goods because it’s home to the highest number of long-established companies that have been passing down their knowledge and technical prowess through the generations.

What Makes Traditional Japanese Crafts High Quality
Traditional crafts are the amalgamation of Japanese culture.
“Traditional crafts” is the general term used for crafts that are produced using processes and techniques that have been passed down through generations. In Japan, this includes textiles, dyed goods, ceramics, lacquerware, woodwork, washi Japanese paper, dolls, items for Buddhist rituals, and other goods that enrich our everyday lives.
Traditional crafts are associated with the concept of “the beauty of use”, which refers to products and skills that become easier to use and approach perfection the longer they come into contact with people.
Currently, it is believed that there are approximately 1,300 different types of traditional crafts in Japan.
Among these, 236 crafts have been officially designated as “traditional Japanese crafts” by the Japanese Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry (as of January 2021).
The main criteria for being recognized as a traditional Japanese craft:
Key Parts of the Production Process Must Be Done by Hand
Traditional Japanese crafts do not have to be entirely handmade, but the underlying process that brings out the product’s unique and distinctive characteristics, such as their quality, form, and design, must be handcrafted.
This guarantees that every traditional Japanese craft is, at its core, a product of human hands, meaning that its size and shape have been designed with human comfort in mind. It also makes the crafts much safer.
The Skills and Techniques Used to Make It Must Be Passed Down for Over 100 Years
The Japanese believe that a technique or a skill can only be considered reliable and complete after it’s been refined through trial and error and constant improvements by numerous craftspeople over a period of at least 100 years.
Skills are closely related to the capability of each craftsperson and precision, and they are something that an individual can refine. Techniques, on the other hand, are associated with the historical accumulation of knowledge, including everything from the selection of raw materials to the production process.
All this said, modern craftspeople don’t just mimic the techniques of the past. Rather, they’re continuously coming up with improvements and developing new ways of doing things without fundamentally changing what makes traditional Japanese crafts unique.
The Skills and Techniques Used to Make It Must Be Passed Down for Over 100 Years
As we can see, the secret to the high quality of made-in-Japan products is the drive of Japanese people for perfection, the adherence to their unique philosophy of hospitality, and their discerning eye that can’t be matched.
Traditional Japanese crafts are one level above normal made-in-Japan products, as they must also meet rigorous criteria such as being handcrafted or made using skills and techniques that have been passed down for at least a century.
Thanks to all of the above, Japanese products have become famous for their high quality all over the world.
