    beautiful boxes
    By lippatrice
    Having bought many boxes from Hiroyuki, I can assure you that the quality has always been at the rendezvous. The boxes slide perfectly and the key cuts are invisible. I like all his boxes but especially the boxes that combine yosegi and walnut .The yosegi marquetry forms a pleasant contrast with the dark wood of the walnut and in addition it is an unusual square format box. I always very much appreciate the attention given in the well-wrapped parcel and with gifts. always a pleasure to offer those you love a box like these, the pleasure of seeing the person trying to open it and when you slip a little message or something, they are amazed! thank you very much Hiroyuki.
