This month’s photo is Wajima lacquerware from Ishikawa Prefecture. Wajima is located 100 km (about 60 miles) north of Kanazawa station on the Hokuriku Shinkansen Line. This Japan’s traditional craft is known as “Wajimanuri” in Japan, and is one of the most popular items that is said to have been used as tableware since the middle of the Edo Era, around the 17th and 18th century. One of the features particular to this lacquerware is its elegant design, etched in gold or silver. © JNTO
