Artisanship since 1909

Yamanakaonsen is a small town in Japan renowned for its hot springs. The town has also been home to artisans who have been creating the tradition of Japanese lacquerware for over 400 years. As many other parts of Japan, the people in Yamanakaonsen have been making a good use of limited natural resources available locally to produce something useful out of Mother Nature such as, in case of Yamanakaonsen, the lacquerware. Nurimono Jokan is a Japanese lacquerware brand produced and manufactured by Morita Shikki Co. Ltd. in Yamanakaonsen with a contemporary minimalistic design for everyday use in mind. Our founder was a nushi artisan whose job was to produce the traditional lacquerware by hand. We inherit the tradition and intend to create that of the future.
