  • Urushi

    Japan has had a long tradition for urushi techniques used to lacquer objects with a layer of deep glossy, transparent luster.
    Urushi lacquer is often regarded as a symbol of Japan.
    The word urushi originates from the word uruwashi, which means graceful elegance.
    The columns, walls, ceiling, floors, and fixtures of this room are lacquered in urushi.
    The tokonoma floor is painted in gold makie over vermilion by famous aizunuri artists.
    Everything in and about this room is a splendid work of art.
