Naruko Lacquerware

Naruko Lacquerware has been around for centuries and its crafting technique was passed down from generations to generations. One significant technique used is the kijiro coating. Wooden bowls are painted with transparent amber lacquer that brings out the actual colour of the wood and tree that makes each wooden bowl unique. The more the lacquer is used, the more prominent the wood grain is. The Naruko Lacquerware is beautifully crafted to withstand the many years of use, and is truly an art piece to appreciate.

Best time to visit: All seasons
