Wakayama Arts and Crafts
Craftsmanship is synonymous with Japanese culture. For millennia, the austere tradition of monozukuri, literally 'creating things', has been a way of life. Though shapes, materials, details and even tastes may evolve, the commitment to craftsmanship continues. Bringing home an example of Wakayama craftsmanship is not only an exceptional memento, it is also to the opportunity to become part of a long history, and the community sustaining a culture of craft and creation.
