Wajima Museum of Urushi Art (lacquer art museum)石川県輪島漆芸美術館

4.0

Art Museum

The Wajima Museum of Urushi Art was established in Wajima City, Ishikawa Prefecture as a base for spreading awareness of the region’s outstanding lacquerware-making tradition. The external appearance of the Museum is reminiscent of the Azekura-zukuri (ancient architectural style using interlocking logs with a triangular section) architecture of the Shoso-in treasure house in Nara. Inside the spacious Museum, lacquer is everywhere. Besides displays introducing the historic Wajima lacquer-making tradition, there are also many lacquerware masterpieces made by Living National Treasures and Members of the Japan Art Academy on display. In the adjoining “Urushi no Sato Square”, visitors can view examples of several tree species, including trees that produce lacquer, and other trees the wood of which has lacquer applied to it to make lacquerware.

Review of Wajima Museum of Urushi Art

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2015/11/15 The place where you could enjoy the traditional Japanese lacquerware Wajimanuri.
Here, I saw many beautiful Wajimanuri,
one of the most famouse traditional Japanese craftworks.

I went to here because I found it in a free holiday brochure by chance. But, I was really moved that...

Reviewed:2020/03/06 世界で唯一、漆の美術館
一階部分は、窓ガラスが多用されていて、日差しがふんだんに入り込み、明るく透明な感じ。売店があか抜けていて、ゆっくり見て楽しい。
肝心の展示は、収蔵品が豊富にあるらしく、いつ行っても、新しい作品を観賞出来る。
ただ、あまり古いものの収蔵品は少ないらしく、大正昭和の秀品が多い。

          Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
