[About Wajima Lacquerware]
Lacquerware produced in Wajima, Ishikawa on Noto Peninsula. It's said the oldest existing lacquerware is about 500 years old. It's assumed that lacquerware had been produced there much earlier according to excavated fragments.
Traditional craftsmen's techniques handed down over generations are applied to create an unparalleled craftwork that is both artistically beautiful and practically solid.

[Characteristics of Wajima Lacquerware]
Made using a firm lacquer base which is hardly used in other regions. Baked diatomite is mixed with lacquer and varnished as a base layer over a wood base. As particles of diatomite have numerous minute pores, it absorbs lacquer well and makes the mixture stickier and more chemically stable.
In the middle ages, Wajima was counted as one of the 10 greatest ports in Japan and was called “Oyanominato”. The port city absorbed woodturners from the surrounding area, and manufacturing and selling were divided to develop the lacquerware industry. Since full-fledged makie decoration techniques were introduced there in modern times, it has been a prominent center of lacquering and decoration.
Wajima lacquerware is the only lacquerware designated as an important cultural asset, and people have been striving to pass on and develop its manufacturing techniques.
