In 1830, at the end of the Edo period (1603-1868), the Kakuda Seibei Shoten was established as a specialty store of Kishu lacquerware. The name of the company, Kakuda Seibei, goes back even further, to a merchant who sold lacquer ware from Kishu to Edo (now Tokyo) in the Kan'ei era (1620).
Now, they produce mainly handcrafted wooden products for daily use with professional artisans.
