Kagawa lacquerware took off during the Edo period, attracting artisans with different expertise to devote their time to studying lacquer. Among them, Zokoku Tamakaji made the most prominent breakthroughs. He integrated the engraving and inlaying techniques of Southeast Asia with the lacquer techniques of Japan to develop kinma, a process of embedding red and yellow lacquer. This technique became representative of Kagawa lacquerware. Kinma was nationally recognized as a traditional handicraft by the Japanese government in 1976. Its gorgeous and elegant qualities can be said to be the essence of Kagawa lacquerware.
