Wakasa lacquerware (called Wakasa-nuri in Japanese) is produced in the area around the city of Obama, Fukui prefecture. It is said to have originated in the early Edo period (1603-1868) when a craftsman serving the Obama domain (now the city of Obama), which controlled the region near Wakasa Bay, created a design depicting the beautiful depths of the sea. This elegant gift of 2 pairs of chopsticks is the perfect gift for anyone that enjoys Japanese cuisine at home. They come in a wooden presentation box ideal for home storage.
