Echizen lacquerware has an established reputation for the beautiful glaze of many layers of lacquer and its solid yet very elegant workmanship. The origin reportedly goes back to the 6th century. The 26th Emperor Keitai was said to be amazed and deeply impressed to see such fine brilliance when he was presented black lacquered tableware. This fineness has been handed down until today.
