Browse our selection of genuine handmade Takayama tea accessories. These rare and hard to acquire accessories are made by Nakata Kizo, whisk maker and bamboo craftsman from Takayama Nara Japan.
Kizo Nakata was born in 1940 in Takayama, Ikoma, Nara Prefecture.
Though he was the son of a rice farmer, at the age of 14, he was sent to acquire skilful hands by learning to make whisks as an apprentice.
In 1975, he founded the Kizo Nakata company, which presently produces about half of Japan's whisks.
