Kiso-hirasawa flourished as a center for Japanese lacquer ware production.
It was associated with Narai-juku which is along Nakasen-do highway.
Narai-juku flourished both as a former post town and as a lacquer ware productive center in the Kiso Region.However Kiso-Hirasawa became more famous than Narai-juku as a producer of Kiso lacquer ware.
