      If you want to see examples of Japanese cedar "buckets" go to a Japanese food utensil supplier and see their flat cedar "buckets" or trays which are used for making sushi rice. The trays are about 4 to 6 inches tall and around 12 to 20 inches in diameter, all made from cedar staves bound to a cedar wood bottom with metal banding or twisted wire. Sushi restaurants may use them and may be willing for you to examine one if asked - or they may not, Take a chance and ask. The wood in the trays is needed since it helps absorb some of the water in the cooked rice to make it just firm enough to make into Nigiri Sushi and Maki sushi rolls.
