It has been more than 60 years since we entered the "Urushi" road.
We are putting more and more into the depth and charm of lacquer.
I have developed many functional tea ceremony tools such as Kacho Fugetsu in Japan, the work of my own craftsman who learned from the classics, the lacquer tea bowl I devised, and the lacquer sloping water that does not allow the cassotte to fall.
Furthermore, the technology cultivated in the manufacture of tea utensils has been handed down to a group of young craftsmen, and we continue to propose a number of Japanese tableware for modern lifestyles.
We will continue to pursue the potential of "urushi" and take on challenges.
We appreciate your guidance and encouragement.
