Aizu lacquerware has a long history that goes back more than 400 years when Ujisato Gamo, who became the feudal lord of Aizu at the behest of Toyotomi Hideyoshi in 1590, began promoting it as an industry. Suzuzen Shikki Shop is a long-established lacquerware store founded in 1832. Artisans who have inherited the production methods used since its founding produce beautiful products. Visitors can paint their own makie designs on plain lacquerware. Why not make lacquerware decorated with your own unique makie designs as a souvenir for your trip?
