The red and black tableware we often see in Japanese restaurants is one of Japan's most iconic products - lacquerware! Japanese lacquerware originated from China, where lacquer was refined from the sap of Chinese lacquer trees. Over time, Japanese craftsmanship surpassed that of China, and Japanese lacquerware evolved into a unique style different from the cheap plastic tableware found in supermarkets. Traditional Japanese lacquerware is highly durable, and the sheen of Japan-made lacquerware can last over a hundred years. Different lacquerware characteristics can be found in different regions of Japan. For example, Odawara lacquerware emphasizes the underlying wood textures, and Kagawa is famous for its lacquered bamboo baskets. However, Wajima City in the Ishikawa Prefecture is unanimously recognized as the birthplace of Japanese lacquerware. Japanese lacquerware is a key intangible cultural asset of Japan.
