彦根仏壇

Hikone Household Buddhist Altars

仏壇・仏具

江戸時代中期に彦根藩では、高度な技術を持つ武具師・塗師(ぬし)・細工師に、武具の製作を辞めて仏壇の製造に携わるように勧めたため、その頃から小規模な家内工業として仏壇作りが始まりました。

Gradually during the 18th century, highly skilled armorers, lacquerers and other artisans were encouraged by the Hikone clan to work on the making of household altars, at first more or less as a ""cottage industry"". Subsequently with the rise in popularity of Buddhism and the patronage of the Hikone clan, a production center became established, forming the foundations of the small craft industry as it exists today.
