Kamakura-bori has 800 years of history.
The origin of Kamakura-bori goes back to 800 years ago.
During the Kamakura era, craftsmen who made Buddhist altars began to make lacquer ware, being bored with the Zen influence of China.
Kamakura-bori features a mixture of Japanese botanical patterns and powerful, bold engravings.
The dark red color with overlaid lacquer is outstanding.
It sometimes takes more than a month for even a skilled craftsman to achieve such fine results.
Local craftsmen with the finest craftsmanship have pursued this arduous process for 800 years.
