In The Heart Of Aizu

While Japan continues to be one of the world’s leading nations in the tech industry, the former Samurai town of Aizu-Wakamatsu is home to a handful of artisans that remain committed to their craft. An ancient tradition passed down through generations of Urushi Shokunin, the art of Urushiware is kept alive through the skill and dedication of these craftsmen.

A labor of love held fast in an ever-increasingly commercialized society.

Directed by Taylor Hawkins • Produced by Steve Sakanashi • Music by Caleb Buse.
