ARITAYAMANAKA Lacquerware

Yamanaka Lacquerware (Ishikawa Prefecture) began its history at the end of the 16th Century when woodgrain craftsmen moved from Echizen to the Yamanaka Spa region. Initially producing souvenirs for visitors to the Yamanaka hot springs, it was not until the 17th Century (Edo period 1603–1868) that they started producing lacquerware goods by inviting lacquerware masters from all over Japan. In the mid 20th Century, the Yamanaka craftsmen decided, for the first time in Japan, to use modern materials such as plastics and synthetic resins instead of genuine wood, thus enabling Yamanaka to make lacquerware products of any shape at a reasonable cost. Since this dramatic change, the market for Yamanaka lacquerware expanded significantly.
