You can take out toothpicks by shaking the container like an omikuji fortune box
Drawing Toothpicks
A toothpick holder that you rattle to get a toothpick out, similar to how you shake for your omikuji oracle at a Shinto shrine to tell you your fortune. This finely crafted holder is made by paulownia wood box craftsmen and has a sliding lid to allow for easy refill.
