Kuwana Imono Mosquito-Repelling Vessel

Kuwana Imono's Mosquito-Repelling Vessel

It is a kayariki (a device to repel mosquitoes by fumigation) made in Mie Prefecture's Kuwana region. Casting in Kuwana began in the Edo period, when Tadakatsu Honda, a vassal of Ieyasu Tokugawa, became the feudal lord of Kuwana and started the production of firearms.

Further, Mie Prefecture is an area where Ise dyed pattern paper, which becomes design of kimonos, was cultivated. The design of the kayariki represents a summery topic designed in the same way kimonos are designed.

Everything ordered perfectly, and extremely fast! This is my second time ordering from Shokunin, and just as the first time, the products just exceeded my expectations. Beautifully crafted objects, well packed and great quality.

I was taking advantage of strong USD to Japanese ¥, and I am glad I did order many things! :-) Everything arrived in less than anticipated time frame for delivery and is in perfect condition due to the efficiently and meticulously packed merchandise! I am still mesmerized how efficient Japanese way of packing so many items in this box with no space wasted, yet it is so obvious that it was done with TLC so nothing is damaged! I learned as I unpacked! Everybody needs to learn packing like Japanese! :-) Opening the package was a great pleasure with a sense of anticipation and mystery even though I knew what I ordered. You could feel the TLC when unwrapping each item like it is coming from a good friend! I felt confident as always ordering beautiful products from Shokunin, as they are of good quality which will last a long time if I take care of them well and hope could extend their life to the next generation. I kept telling my son that he would inherit those beautiful items ;-). Wish I could get everything they offer..:-).

Kuwana Imono
Mosquito-Repelling Vessel

"Hanabi" and "Asagao" are especially popular. If the mosquito coils are deflected by moisture or if the mosquito coils are close to the lid, the fire may go out in the middle. It is important to insert the mosquito coils firmly, but it is easier to stabilize them if you insert them with the front side of the coils down. If a mosquito coil is broken in the middle, spread the ashes of the burned coil over the Mosquito-Repelling Vessel and burn the coil on the ashes to keep it burning until the end of its life. When you want to extinguish it, just sink the ignited part into the ashes. Please give it a try. Video

Size: About 164x164xH43mm

*As the material used is iron, the legs of a kayariki may rust off depending on the environment. In that case, we'd appreciate it if users could remove these rusts on a regular basis.
*Mosquito coils are not accompanied by the kayariki.
*There might be cases in which a kayariki is a little wobbly. We kindly ask for your understanding.
