kishuu urushi 紀州漆 Kishu laquerware

- quote
The more you use Kishu lacquerware, the deeper the vermilion and black hues become.
Kishu hina dolls are also made by its traditional craftsmanship, while gorgeous and impressive Kishu temari handballs are toys that were made for princesses in olden times.
Nachi black ink stones absorb ink well and are used by calligraphers.
