“SOROBAN” is a thing used for calculating since a long time ago. This is designed with Japan's outstanding woodcraft skills. “算-calculate” This bead, handmade by a Japanese master craftsman is very useful. “鳴-jingle” The bumping sound of the clean bead is proof of high quality technique. “玩-play” Do you have any memories of using an abacus when you were a child? This calculator can also sometimes be a toy. It will be a gift of memories. “飾-display” You can choose widely up to 25 kinds of choices by combining 5 types of " Chinese quince, Cherry, Oak, Walnut, Maple " and 5 types of shape.
