Hakone is located in Kanagawa prefecture and it will take about 2 hours to get there from Tokyo.

Hakone is surrounded by mountains and is also famous for onsen.

Hakone is often associated with wooden products called Yosegizaiku, which means marquetry in English.

The design used for the tray is called 麻の葉模様 (Asano-ha moyou), which literally means linen leaf design, and we believe that this design keeps away bad spirits, so we’ve been using this design for various things like kimono.

The size is 30cm in diameter and 1.8 thickness.

The price is 8,500yen + tax.

It is a tray, but it is coated, so you can also use it as a plate serving entre and cheese etc.
