Hikobei IV was appointed the position of purveyor to Sento Imperial Palace (the imperial palace of an abdicated emperor). Hikobei VI was an artist of refined taste and created a number of art works such as tools for tea ceremonies. Hikobei VIII exported lacquerware and was known as a pioneer of lacquerware trading. He also established a school of Maki-e and worked actively on many projects. The present owner continues his endeavors. Our business is not limited to luxury Maki-e articles. We handle a wide variety of articles, such as plateware for daily use and interior goods. At the same time, we are actively collaborating with overseas companies and creators to open up new opportunities. In this way, we continue the legacy to spread the individual charm of Kyoto-style lacquerware that cannot be conveyed easily.
