A chabako is a Japanese utensil box specifically designed for tea ceremonies held outside of the usual location. Made from lightweight wood, it serves as a portable storage and transport solution for tea ceremony utensils. The chabako ensures the safekeeping of the utensils during transit and protects them from damage. The choice of wood is often insect-resistant, providing added preservation. This versatile box allows tea ceremony practitioners to conduct ceremonies in different venues, bringing the necessary tools with them while maintaining the integrity of the utensils and upholding the traditions of the tea ceremony.
