The origins of Takaoka-shikki started when Toshinaga Maeda, the lord of the Kaga Domain, had armor and wardrobes constructed during the time he was building Takaoka Castle in the early Edo period.
Our founder, Jisaburo Shibata, established an engraving and lacquering workshop in the Narumicho district of Takaoka City (present day: Kyomachi district).
Our workshop operations currently center on planning and producing tea ceremony goods, liquor cups, Japanese accessories, and other lacquerware products in collaboration with our network of Kiji-shi (woodworkers), Aogai-shi (shell-crafters), and Makie-shi (gold-lacquer crafters).
