“Made in Japan” brings over 80 different crafts from all across the country together in a single destination online. From the delicate yamaga paper lanterns, to Kyoto boxwood combs, you can zoom in to discover these crafts in minute detail, and learn about the untold stories behind them. When you’re done, you might even be able to tell the difference between Edo Makie and Wajima lacquer ware, or Kutani and Kyo Satsuma ware.
Edo Makie is recognized as a luxury lacquer that’s used for special occasions, whereas Wajima, known for its durability, is used regularly in the home.
With this special new collection, we hope many more people around the world can discover and fall in love with all things “Made in Japan”. And perhaps in some small way, by preserving these crafts online, we also hope to contribute to reviving these traditions for many more generations to enjoy.
