Western Area1h

Overview

Odawara lacquerware is a craft that has been passed down since the Muromachi period. The technique involves scraping lacquer off to make the natural wood stand out even more. Okawa Mokkoujo’s workshop handles a variety of items including lacquerware, trays, and bowls. Here, visitors can try polishing bowls and other tableware by themselves. They can even create their own unique designs using water paper. The items can be taken the same day they are made and used at home.
