    Zohiko

    Graceful Japanese lacquer wares loved by Kyoto people

    The origin of this exclusive Japanese lacquer shop dates back to 1661, when the first generation owner opened the shop as a Zoge-ya (ivory shop).  Since then, for over 350 years, Zohiko has presented fine Japanese lacquer items.  From truly artistic masterpieces with golden decorations on their surface to casual daily ones, from special plates to multi-tiered food boxes, their showroom offers a wide range of Japanese lacquer wares.  Each piece is made by experienced craftspeople that ensure elegance and usability in their details.  The item in the photo is 11,550 yen.
