On October 28, 2018, our training session was conducted at the Megane Museum in Sabae City. After that, we moved to the Urushi no Sato Kaikan and deepened our knowledge about lacquer painting.
At the megane Museum, we listened attentively to the local guide’s explanation and learned about the history of eyeglasses and how they produce glasses. We also learned the reason why the eyeglass industry flourished in Sabae.
At the Urushi no sato, we learned about the lacquerware tradition, while asking questions to the craftsmen.
