Make your bespoke Chochin lanterns, handcrafted by Kyo-Chochin Minori - the same family business with whom we collaborated to make the Chochin Lantern Kit. Since the tail end of the Edo period, for around 160 years, the Yanase family has been supplying the people of Kyoto with light.
Your Chochin can be made in a variety of sizes and three shapes and you can even print your original design on it.
The Japanese way of keeping in harmony with the seasons and the local environment will always be at our core. That’s why Pieces of Japan is committed to prioritizing the sustainability of craftsmen and the natural resources that support them.
We believe that in sharing beautiful, durable, handmade products that last for generations, we can take steps away from our current throwaway culture to create meaningful connections with the things we own.
