Wajima-nuri, lacquer ware made here in Wajima, is a world-widely famous lacquer ware. They are featured by solid because they are made from raw lacquer, paste made by rice, and diatom earth (small sized powder so-called by Ji-noko). Basic materials such as bowls, cups and mags are basically made of zelkoba, a kind of cypress. In order to protect lacquer wares, linen is wounded on the corners of the bowls, trays or any other lacquer wares. Many layers of lacquers are painted after being dried. Therefore, it takes time normally for half a year. Such techniques were introduced more than 1,000 years ago from the Peoples’ Republic of China, and later improved here in Wajima. In Edo period, particularly in about 180 year ago, techniques to produce solid and durable lacquer wares have been established. Nowadays, Wajima-nuri has been produced and sold, not only in Japan, but also all over the world.
