Kagawa, Japan, is known as the Kingdom of Lacquer. The prefecture features 40 unqiue lacquer techniques, from material processes to decoration. Even the simplest pieces take several months to complete. The research done by the founder of Kagawa lacquerware, Tamakaji Zokoku, led to the development of the five major Kagawa lacquer techniques: zokoku-nuri, kinma, goto-nuri, zonsei, and choshitsu. Zokoku-nuri is one of the final processing stages. Black powder is thinly sprinkled on the lacquer to create a matte finish and accentuate the simplicity and elegance of Kagawa lacquerware. The name Zokoku-nuri originates form Mr. Tamakaji Zokoku.
