What is Kongou-Ishime-Nuri, the intangible cultural heritage of Shizuoka prefecture?

Unlike usual lacquer ware, the lacquer work produced with Kongou-Ishime-Nuri skill has rough and mat texture.
The colored wine glasses of Toba Shitsugei is produced with this special skill.

Kongou-Ishime-Nuri is a special method of lacquering. This special method itself is designated as the intangible cultural heritage of Shizuoka prefecture. Shizuoka prefecture has long history of lacquer work. The craftsmen of Suruga lacquer ware inherited the traditional skill, and develop new lacquer work for contemporary lifestyle. Mr. Toba Toshiyuki of Toba Shitsugei, the atelier of the lacquer sake cup inherits the Kongou-Ishime-Nuri. He keeps the special skill of Kongou-Ishime-Nuri, and produces stylish lacquer ware like this Japanese lacquer sake cup.

The great feature of Kongou-Ishime-Nuri is its solid foundation. The solid foundation makes the lacquer ware tough and durable. Abekawa river in Shizuoka prefecture produces good sand. Using this sand and lacquer, traditional craftsmen produce solid foundation. This method is an original method of Kongou-Ishime-Nuri. By lacquering layers of lacquer, the products get beautiful gloss and color.

The colored wine glasses of Toba Shitsugei is the collaboration of transparent glasses and mat and rough texture of lacquer by Kongou-Ishime-Nuri. In addition to the design, the lacquered stem is durable and easier to have the glass than other glasses. Lacquer work produces original atmosphere and usability.
