Travel Guide - Kitakata Lacquer Museum (Kurayashiki Azumasa)

InformationInformation

Kitakata Lacquer Museum is located in the shopping facility called "Kurayashiki Azumasa", which uses the renovated Kura storehouses and former residence of Matsuzaki family, the wealthiest rice merchant in Fukushima during the Meiji Period (1868 - 1912). Here, there are shops and restaurants that offer Fukushima's local products and dishes, such as handicrafts with Aizu silk, Kirigeta wooden sandals, Soba noodles, and Kitakata Ramen noodles.
In the lacquer museum, lacquerware crafts and art pieces are on display. Among the items, the vase made by Tanaka Toru and the gold Byobu folding screen made by Akutagawa Seiho are must-see. You can buy a variety of lacquerware from furniture to small pieces at the shop. The building of the museum used to be a part of the Kazama family's mansion, a potent landowner in Fukushima in the past.
