In the past the Wakasa region was linked to Kyoto by the Saba Kaido trade route. Seafood was taken from coastal Wakasa to Kyoto, and in exchange the culture and refinement of Kyoto made its way up to Wakasa. Also transported along this road were prized wakasa-nuri lacquerworks. Some used "hōseki-nuri" ("gemstone lacquer") with pieces of shell, pine leaves and seeds. Now the range of designs has been expanded, while still retaining the breath-taking beauty of the past. The craftspeople who work in wakasa-nuri lacquer spend around 18 months applying layer after layer of lacquer; each of these chopsticks is truly of the highest quality.
