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 lacquer works. 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.
