A Kishu lacquerware lunchbox with the traditional hemp design (black). Lacquerware is considered to bring good luck, and has traditionally been used for celebrations in Japan. It is also great for daily use because of its sturdiness. The Kishu cypress wood used to make the lunchbox comes from forest thinning, so it is great for the environment as well.
*Kishu lacquerware is a traditional craft of Wakayama. Black and red lacquer are layered over and over. Along with Aizu (Fukushima), Echizen (Fukui), and Yamanaka (Ishikawa), Kishu is one of the main producers of lacquerware in Japan.
