The Tohoku region prides itself in its abundant traditional crafts and the long cultivated craftsmanship. In an attempt to introduce the traditional yet challenging brands set about to break new grounds to the foreign media, a tour around selected workshops was carried out by the ‘home town special products support project’ with the support of the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. On September 10th, four reporters from China, the U.S. and Singapore visited Urakasumi Sake Brewery Saura Co., Ltd and TOHOKU KOGEI Co., Ltd.
TOHOKU KOGEI representative Mr. Saura introduced the Tamamushi Lacquerware, and the reporters actually experienced designing a TOUCH CLASSIC bookmark in the company’s showroom. Our factory manager Mr. Matsukawa then explained the lacquerware techniques in detail using sample products from the manufacturing process.
We would like to share deepest thanks to the reporters for visiting us.
