About Odate Magewappa

‘Odate Magewappa’ is sang in Akita Ondo (dance song) and it started to be produced as a product in the late 17th Century. It had been introduced to the lower class samurais and was encouraged to do as their side job by the head of Odate Castle, Satake. Akita cedar tree has high flexibility and a beautiful grain. It is stripped thinly, dipped in hot water to make it soft and sewed with a bark of mountain cherry blossom. This simple and natural material with the bright bark and neat grain fits into the modern sensations. This beauty is also worldly known too. In 1980, it was designated as the country’s traditional craft product. The oketaru (tub or barrel) that was made out of the natural Akita cedar tree was also designated as a country’s traditional craft product in 1984.. It’s history dates back to Nara era. Nowadays, they produce crafts, such as, vases or any interior objects, which matches the modern life style without losing traditional essence. This product makes good use of the flexibility and the material of the natural Akita cedar tree and it is like a gem of crafts.
