GATO MIKIO '我戸幹男' was originally founded in 1908 (Meiji 41), as Gato Sawmill in Yamanaka Hot Spring, a town famed for wood turning. 
Following the intentions and spirit of the original Kijishi wood-turners, they aspire to perfect the woodwork that is completed individually by our craftsmen. 
They make the most of the beautiful grain that only natural wood can have, and they strive to highlight it in their products. 
This means that they never compromise on the quality of their work and they are proud of the quality of their materials, the precision of their wooden base work, and the clear look of the wiped lacquer finishes. 
Only after each element has been completed perfectly, do they assemble them together to create unique handcrafts. 
They continue to create authentic and long-lasting lacquerware pieces, pursuing functionality with traditional skills, and artistry based on Japanese aesthetic senses.
