Araiso-dana

The Araiso-dana is among the numerous tana that are konomi of Tantansai, the 14th iemoto. Like the Koko-dana, the Araiso-dana has four legs and three shelves. Unlike the Koko-dana, the Araiso-dana is constructed of sanded, unfinished kiri (paulownia) wood. The lower koshiita display carved designs of ocean waves as the name of this tana refers to a windy, wave-beaten shoreline.

The Araiso-dana is used in the exact same manner as the more common Koko-dana, however due to its kiji jiita, the use of an unglazed mizusashi is permissible.
