Japanese Mortar & Pestle


Grind those spices and herbs yourself for the most flavor (Bonus: Good looks!)



We love this kitchen tool not only for its perfect form and function, but also because its makers resemble our crew here at East Fork in so many ways. MUJUN works closely with traditional craftspeople in Japan to make kitchen essentials rooted deeply in historical forms, but redesigned for modern living. Use it to make fresh spice blends to season meats and vegetables, to make togarashi to put on rice, to crush peanuts for atop stir-fry, and so much more.


  • Keep it fresh! This is a beautiful, traditional clay mortar & pestle used for grinding and pounding spices, herbs, leaves, roots, nuts and more.
  • Made in Japan by the MUJUN design and craft collective
  • The mortar can be dishwashed, but hand-wash the pestle
  • Mortar is clay with a silicone base, pestle is untreated wood
  • Dimensions: 5.5” x 4”
