Raku ware Hoya Ko’uro Futa’oki by Waraku Kawasaki
When we used a naga’ita (a long board), a “hoya ko’uro” (an incense burner) futa’oki was brought out. It is one of the seven futa’oki (shichishu futa’oki), and is never carried in or out in a kensui (a dirty water receptacle). Therefore, it is used only with a naga’ita or da’isu (so that you have the futa’oki set up on the shelf – as in morokazari). After removing it from the kensui, it is placed as is at the prescribed location (near the lower right corner of the ro), but the lid of the futa’oki needs to be opened before the lid of the kama can be placed on top. Before returning it to the naga’ita, the lid of the hoya ko’uro futa’oki needs to be closed.
