Hida Shunkei Lacquerware is produced around Takayama City in Gifu Prefecture.
The clear lacquer that produces Hida Shunkei Lacquerware’s impressively clear, deep color is a secret guarded by lacquering masters who each have their own unique formulas.
After 5 to 6 years of natural drying, the wood is finished by a woodworker. The finished wood is then transferred to the hands of a lacquer craftsman, who applies primer, rubbing, and top coat. The lacquering process takes three to four months from start to finish. The lacquer is rubbed over and over again, resulting in beautiful and durable lacquer ware.
