Ryukyu Lacquerware


Inherited in the 14th to 15th centuries, Ryukyuan lacquerware was used as gifts and products for trade during the times of the Ryukyu Kingdom. Here products are made to fit trends, while at the same time traditional techniques are preserved. Ryukyuan lacquerware is displayed and sold on the premises, and the factory on the second floor can be visited for seeing the process of production. Original pieces can also be made at the workshop corner.
