● Unparalleled craftsmanship of Kyoto lacquerware
Founded more than 100 years ago, the studio mainly produces incense tools and tea ceremony related lacquerware products. Though initially the woodworking was at the core of studio’s activities, now they also include all the processes of lacquerware production, from wooden base manufacturing to the maki-e, raden or relief carving decoration. All the operations are carried out by the division of labour, and the studio boasts to be one of the rare places in Kyoto to complete order-made lacquerware items from scratch, starting from lathe woodturning.
