Pink colored kitchen canister “Ukishima”, a Japanese storage tin reflecting the colors of favorite handmade Japanese sweets (wagashi) with smooth sweet bean paste.

This listing is for 1 round empty coffee and tea, flour and sugar, cereal storage canister or even Nespresso capsule holder with an airtight lid - a great, colorful addition to your kitchen organization! The Japanese paper is durable with no color-fading.


// SIZE //
The storage canister is 3.3” (8.5 cm) in diameter, 4.7” (12 cm) tall and holds approx. 17 oz (500 ml) of loose leaf tea, cereal, coffee, flour, sugar, candies, treats or any other filling depending on its volume

// COLORS //
A metal round tin covered with pink colored paper and swirl pattern

// CARE //
You can clean the inside of the storage canister with a wet or dry cloth. The tin canister is for dry fillings only. If water or tea spills onto the tissue paper, please use a damp cotton cloth to absorb the liquid. Please do not rub or pull the paper. Other liquids may leave some stain. Overall, this paper covered storage tin lasts for a long time without color fading of the paper. We do not use any plastic covering or coating to leave the tissue paper in its traditional state.

This lightweight watermark Japanese tissue paper is traditionally used for gift wrapping or decorating small items. It features the “Uzumaki” (swirl) pattern.

We carefully cover each part of the small tin (lid top, lid side and tin body) separately with the tissue paper and glue it only on the ends to prevent any bubbles. The paper-covered airtight containers are empty and ready to be filled.

The round tin is wrapped in a lovely tissue paper and tied with a paper string, flower and tag. If you need a personalized message on the tag, just let us know. Please allow 1-2 days for your order to be completed and shipped. Our shipping cost includes registered mail with a tracking number
