Suikaen Takayama Chasen

Suikaen Yasuburo Takayama Chasen is a family-run bamboo tea whisk making company in Takayama, Nara Prefecture, Japan. The family have passed down their skills for over 500 years. The “chasen” or matcha whisks are made today in the same way, with the same tools and techniques that they were by their ancestors 500 years ago. The current family head is the 25th generation descendant. Each whisk takes around 6 years to make from growing the bamboo themselves, to seasoning and creating the chasen with great skill.
