The combination of a rabbit and the moon has long been popular in Japan.
In Japan, it is said that there is a rabbit on the moon, which is derived from the fact that the crater shape of the moon resembles a rabbit.

Also, since the Japanese event called "Otsukimi" (moon viewing) is held in autumn, the design with autumn flowers gives a more seasonal feeling.

Fukunishi-Sobei Shoten was started by taking over the lacquerware division from the main family, which had been in existence for 13 generations since the early Edo period. They have developed their products over time by figuring out "what must not be changed and what must be changed". In addition to the lacquering technique that makes the most of the moist luster of lacquerware, the company has handed down the unique decorative techniques of Aizu, such as Aizu-e painting with motifs of pine, bamboo, plum, and ceremonial arrow, and the spinning wheel. Fukunishi Soubei's lacquerware flexibly incorporates modern industrial technology, and is a special product that has a high artistic value as well as an aspect of being daily use items with which long-time use gives an additional charm.
