I bought some of that last time. Small coin purses as gifts. Though it was in Takayama.YES ! I bought a great handbag on our last trip to Japan .
While waiting for the clouds/mist/fog to lift so we could see Mt Fuji I found a great range of bags made from lacquered deerskin !!
"Lacquered deer-leather from INDEN-YA was used to make the decorative parts of the samurai armor. It had to be light, soft and solid at the same time."
Sense of Wonder : INDEN-YA
How much were they? I have Xmas presents to buy.
