    Okamura Shikki-ten

    Special lacquer ware with name imprinted for celebratory occasions

    The first generation owner of Okamura Shikki-ten was from Wakasa province (present-day Fukui prefecture).  He moved to Kyoto in 1894 and worked and trained himself in a tea ceremony utensil shop.  He became independent and opened his lacquer ware shop whose legacy has been passed on up to the present day.  Choosing only Kyoto-origin materials and local craftspeople, their shop has a full range of large and small lacquer wares which are considered to be not only beautiful but also easy-to-use.  If you order well in advance (7-10 days), they can add names or preferred letters on the ware which is a popular service for a birthday or wedding gift.
