The Aizu lacquerware industry fell into decline for a time after the Boshin War, but today this lacquerware studio continues to preserve the traditions of the craft while also promoting its evolution in line with the times. As the establishment sells its wares directly, visitors can purchase pieces such as lacquered soup bowls at low prices. The studio also offers a lacquerware repair service. In addition, the studio offers tours which enable participants to watch lacquerware artisans at work up close, and maki-e gold and silver lacquerware painting experiences in which participants can decorate and take home an exquisite piece of maki-e lacquerware the same day.

It is called ""Aizu Keizan ware"" and continues to make until today. After that, he fired melting pots for silver mines in Aizu Karuizawa (today's Yanaizu Town) and kiln flourished, but there is only one kiln at present. Pottery works made using a traditional potter's wheel or formed by hand, and pieces made with the ""tatara"" (slab-building) technique are well known for their natural beauty and warmth."

    Travel / Tourism
    Fukushima Kitakata-shi Maeda 4924
    "This sake brewery created the label Hoshi Masamune in 1919, and after the Second World War was revived with the release of Kita no Hana. It now bears the name of Kitakata's youngest brewery, a town which has long been known for its sake making traditions. The water is clean, clear spring water bubbling up from a bedrock aquifer fed from the Iide mountain range, which has supported sake brewing for some 500 years. Their junmai daiginjo, brewed using Fukushima's Yume Kobo yeast, is a soft, full flavored sake. Their primary goal with the name Kita no Hana is to evoke their community of Kitakata, a famous sake town, and to help bring a bit of joy to people's lives through the Hana character (meaning both ""flower"" and ""splendor"")."
