The size of the plate is ideal for serving wagashi (Japanese sweets) and it can be accompanied by a wagashi fork to complete as a set.

In 1887, Okeei was founded by Shinemon Kawamata, an artisan of yui-oke in Fukugawa, Tokyo, a town which flourished as a port handling the distribution of lumber. Wooden tubs and rice keepers made by Shinemon had a good reputation as they were well made. Since then, Okeei has faithfully maintained the traditional techniques being the only remaining yui-oke workshop in Tokyo.
