The experience program we offer allows you to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of "Tamamushi-nuri" (Tamamushi Lacquerware), designated a traditional craft of Miyagi prefecture. You can experience the process of stamping your name on the lacquerware together with the artisan, which is usually performed only by our staff.

Experience Flow (when putting name on lacquerware)
1. Material, product description
2. Mix lacquer material (since it is synthetic lacquer, it is unlikely to become blurry) so that you can write your name on it.
3. Practice on a glass plate
4. Stamp the name on the product
5. Dry lacquer material
6. Sprinkle gold powder with silk cotton
7. Drying
8. Put completed project in cosmetics box
9. Finish

During the drying time for step 7, enjoy a complimentary coffee or kokonoe (a sweet, traditional drink) served in the showroom.

For beginners it is difficult to properly mix the material to make a clean finish, but since a staff member will be working closely with you, you can have peace of mind. You can also keep the stamp with your name on it. We are able to lend aprons to keep your clothes clean.

You can borrow an apron during the experience, so please let us know if you need one when making the reservation. If you want to add more names to your product, there will only be an additional product fee.
