Sanuki-bori is a lacquer technique popularized in Kagawa in the Taisho period. The technique entails carving wooden blanks into the desired item before applying lacquer. Because sanuki-bori is relatively simple, it greatly contributed to the ubiquity of lacquerware in everyday life. It is worth noting that the techniques used to produce Taiwanese Penglai Lacquerware were combined with sanuki-bori,which had been inspired by Yamanaka Tadasu, and the culture of Taiwan. Therefore, Taiwanese Penglai Lacquerware is a good example of Japan-Taiwan exchange through art!
