Communicate technology to future generations
The people involved in the lacquer industry in Niigata since the Edo period gathered craftsmen together, communicating information to the future while exchanging information.
However, such collaboration is being lost in the present Japan, not only in the lacquer industry.
Therefore, I have named myself "Kiyo" and have held a full-fledged successor training course since 2016. In addition, we hold courses for manufacturing workers who will use lacquer technology to create new products.
The spirit of the technologies and challenges that have been passed on here has been focused on fostering successors so that they will never cease. I will continue to love craftsman friends, supporting families, and the local community, and inherit the technique of lacquer to the future.
