For Yuzen, natural motifs are often drawn, and designs such as flowers, birds, wind, moon, and flowers of the four seasons are famous. The basic Yuzen technique is the same, but the atmosphere and the production process differ depending on the production area. The world of Yuzen, where craftsmen draw patterns by hand, is truly unique and special.
