Beautiful Wood Pattern Lacquerware
Yamanaka Shikki was started near Yamanaka hot spring area in Ishikawa for making
lacquerware. The special characteristic of Yamanaka Shikki is to see the beautiful wood pattern by the way the wood is cut parallel to the ground. When Urushi lacquer is used, the Urushi strengthens the wood and acts as an insulator for hot foods as well as protecting the wood. This process makes it possible for you to enjoy Urushi products for many years.
