Japanese lacquer has a history of several thousand years, and Kagawa Prefecture is a key region for lacquer production in Japan. Zokoku-nuri, invested by the father of lacquerware, Mr. Tamakaji Zokoku, is one of Japan's most important lacquer techniques. Workpieces are placed on spinning wheels and layers of lacquer are added to create convex and concave patterns. Powder extracted from the zizania latifolia is added to the final layer of lacquer before the workpiece is cured. Zizania latifolia is a local aquatic plant, and adding the powder creates a distinct matte effect. Zokoku-nuri is commonly applied to tea trays and round plates. It is one of the five major Kagawa lacquer techniques, along with kinma, goto-nuri, zonsei, and choshitsu.
