    The owner was attracted to the lacquerware made nearby and opened this shop after studying at Kiso Lacquer Institute. His original works and local artists’ works are displayed and available for sale. Inside you will find utensils, clothing, accessories, wild vine baskets and more. Among the recommended items would be the “sugisara”—born from its use of Natural Monument Yakushima cedars, which were felled by the typhoon. The lacquerware includes many everyday easy-to-use pieces.

Nagano Areas

Nagano prefecture is an exciting mix of mountains, hot spring monkeys, and preserved Edo history. At the heart of the Japanese Alps, Nagano is one of the country’s most popular destinations, whether in winter for its snow sports and the much-loved Jigokudani Monkey Park or in the warmer months for discovering the undulating hills on foot. For fantastic Edo architecture, head to the Kiso Valley for a 60-kilometer stretch of quaint wooden buildings that marked the Nakasendo route 200 years ago.
