Small yet long-lasting

Toothpicks have been an integral part of human life for at least 100,000 years.
They are such familiar and humble objects that we scarcely pay them much attention, yet we would feel a little lost without them.
When you pick one up and use it, it just feels right. Toothpicks are surprisingly irreplaceable.

Kikusui Sangyo’s products may be diminutive but our ethos is to create things that stand the test of time.

We were once the smallest manufacturer in Kawachinagano City, where toothpick making flourished as a local industry, but we continue to thrive to this day.
From the iconic Kuromoji pick (a cocktail stick specifically for Japanese confectionery), that is our founding product, to toothpicks, chopsticks, kitchen utensils, and more; we now deliver utensils made from natural materials, such as wood and bamboo, nationwide.

We continue to uphold the wisdom inherent in Japanese craftsmanship.
And it would bring us joy if we could become an irreplaceable part of everyone's lives.

OUR TRADITION

Craftsmanship at Kikusui Sangyo

Since the Meiji era, Kawachinagano City in Osaka has been renowned as the leading producer of toothpicks (including cocktail sticks and confectionary picks) in Japan. Kikusui Sangyo has inherited this tradition and remains the sole manufacturer of round toothpicks in this region today.
With the sentiment of “Preserving local industries means preserving the community” in mind, we remain committed to craftsmanship today.
