Established in 1856, Yamada Sadauemon Shikkiten is a long-established purveyor of lacquerware. The current head, Kazunori Yamada, is the sixth-generation owner. Yamada Sadauemon Shikkiten makes tableware that emphasizes the merits of wood. Using urethane paints, they purposely let the grain of the wood shine through in each product to show that it is made out of wood.
