It looks like an object, but it's actually a »mould«. This is for making chocolate. Japan's Toyama Prefecture is a traditional city for the foundry industry. This product is designed by us. It was made by Fujita Corporation, a small town in Toyama City.A beautiful mould with a family crest and petal motif consists of 6 parts. The separated figure is based on Japanese sweets. BBS JAPAN from the same prefecture cooperated in the design of this chocolate. In Japanese, the mould is called KANAGTA. And those who have inherited this wonderful tradition are called HANAGATA,likening them to flowers.
