    Fukushima Pref. Aiduwakamatsushi Mondenmachichinoseki Aizu Lacquer Industrial Park 1943-4
    A one-minute walk from the Aizu Bus Kogyodanchiiriguchi bus stop. This studio is the only one in the country which carries only wooden lacquerware. Aizu lacquerware developed in large part thanks to the Gamo Ujisato, lord of Aizu, supporting it as a local industry in 1590. 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.
