    Ryosai Kubo

    The 25th generation Kubo Ryosai has been making chasen for generations in Takayama, Ikoma City, Nara Prefecture, and has been designated as a traditional craftsman certified by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. The method of making chasen that has continued since the Tokugawa era is a secret, and the Kubo family, who was a vassal of Munetaka Takayama who had been entrusted with the shogunate, handed down the technique of making chasen from generation to generation and continues to the present day.
