Negoro lacquerware was produced at the temple Negoro-ji (根来寺)in Izumi province. The red layers of lacquer of the Negoro wares are intended to gradually wear away with use, revealing the black lacquer underneath. This effect has since been copied and emulated elsewhere.

Mercury was used in the production and the deities for mercury were venerated at the local temples.

Tea and Daruma

Daruma san is the father of the Tea Plant in ancient lore.

"When the priest Daruma sat in a cave for nine years meditating, he had to fight sleepiness. He thought: "Because I have eyes, my eyelids fall over them and I start snoozing." So in a bold act he cut off his eyelids to keep awake.

The eyelashes, which he had thrown away, took root and turned into the tea bush to give us this wonderful wakening beverage, as legend knows!。

? Who is Daruma ?
