Nowhere takes chopsticks more seriously than this tiny establishment. Ohashi Kobo creates bespoke sticks that carefully pay attention to your height, gender and hand-size. You’ll need to be patient, though - it takes around a year from order to delivery. There is a small ready-made selection for impatient shoppers.
