Wajima lacquer was once called the Essence of Japanese Beauty and has an 800-year history. Wajima lacquer is created by the hand of a living national treasure and is one of the few products that the Japanese government certifies as a national traditional craft. The lacquering process consists of 12 stages and in the final stage, the design is covered with flowers and branches of pure gold and silver exquisitely drawn with care by craftsmen of the Imperial Household Agency.
