"Komolabo" is a project started to hand down komo barrels, which has inherited Japanese traditional culture as producing a bright atmosphere with its "kagami biraki" at happy events, to the next generation in more modern and casual way of gifts.
Even though it's small, each barrel is made by skillful craftsmen. Recommended for a gift since it has a tenugui (Japanese hand towel) inside. Komolabo produces new kinds of komo barrels that are born out of creators' imagination based on the history and background.

About Komodaru barrels
A sake transport ship called "Tarukaisen" was used for transporting high-quality sake from Itami and Nada to Edo (Tokyo). In order to protect the barrels, people wrapped around a big shitodaru (72-liter barrel) with a woven straw mat and called them "komokamuri". Also, "shirushikomo" on which trademarks were printed or branded were used to distinguish the brand.
In Amagasaki, which is famous for high-grade sake production in Japan, still manufactures shirushikomo that are used by sake breweries all over the country.A "Kagami biraki", in which the kagami (the lid) is vigorously opened and a toast is made with the sake inside, is necessary for auspicious events such as a wedding ceremony and celebration party. This company has been continuing to provide these komodaru barrels that make your special day even more brilliant since its establishment in the late 19th century.
