Aizu lacquerware

About Aizu lacquerware

Aizu-nuri is lacquerware made in the Aizu region of Fukushima Prefecture. Lacquerware flourished as a craft in this region thanks to the widespread planting of lacquer trees during the Muromachi period (1336-1573), the abundance of wood that is used as the base material, and the region's warm and humid climate that is suitable for the craft.
●Designated as a Traditional Craft of Japan in 1975
