Wajima-nuri is a lacquer ware made in Wajima City, Ishikawa Prefecture.
It is characterized by its unparalleled care and attention to detail in the lacquering process, which involves more than 20 processes and a total of 75-124 times of careful manual labor before it is completed.
Although it is a labor-intensive and costly process, Wajima-nuri is characterized by the fact that the technique has been preserved without placing emphasis on inexpensive production.
In 1975, Wajima-nuri was designated as a traditional craft by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry,
and in 1977, it was designated as an important intangible cultural asset.
