His incense containers are inspired by the country landscapes, and through crafting them he came up with his unique urushi ware and innovative ‘NERIKANSHITSU®.’ Kazuyori HIKIMOCHI Being a son of HIKIMOCHI Rikio and apprenticed under the master craftsman, NUNO Tatsumi, a Buddhist alter maker in Nanao, Kazuyori came back to Wajima in 2017 and is now working at WAJIMANURI STUDIO RAKU.
