Shunkei Nuri (Lacquer ware):
Shunkei Nuri is from Hida Takayama, where located in Gifu Prefecture. It is created using transparent lacquer on yellow- or red-stained wood, so that the natural wood grain can be seen (similar to Kuroye Nuri in this respect). The name is derived from the inventor who was active in Sakai during the reign of the Emperor Go-Kameyama (1368-1392). This method became popular in the 17th century in Takayama, Hida province. Many articles for use in tea-drinking were manufactured using this technique.
