Hida Shunkei is lacquerware made in Hida region using the natural grain of wood.
It was first produced in the Edo period (1603-1868) and was initially used for tea ceremony utensils, but as time went by, the demand for it changed to daily necessities, and stacked boxes and trays were made and used by many people.

As each piece is handmade, the grain of the wood and the color of the paint may vary slightly.
As a feature of Shunkei, the color changes from a dark amber when it is freshly painted to a lighter amber as time goes by, which brings out the grain of the wood.
Do not store in a dry place for a long time. It may cause the paint to crack.
We try to keep the product photos as close to the actual color as possible, but the actual color may differ depending on your monitor or room lighting.
Please note that there may be a slight error in the size.
