DESCRIPTION

Located at the center of the old city of Aizu Wakamatsu. We use as a store the first and second floors of a wooden building built in the style of a Japanese kura warehouse, but featuring a western-style architecture. The staircase has a railing, but because the building is over one hundred years old, there are places that are not wheelchair accessible. Next to the east side of the store, there is a parking lot that can accommodate up to six vehicles. For those arriving by chartered bus, there is a parking area reserved for public buses 1 minute walk from the store that a single bus can use for free with an advance reservation. The Aizu Lacquerware Museum, where you can learn about the raw materials, manufacturing processes and main techniques of lacquerware all at a glance, can be visited for free.
