Summary of donations for the 2024 Noto Peninsula Earthquake (Wajima-nuri related)

I believe that there are many inquiries and interest from people overseas about where to donate to the Noto Peninsula Earthquake, so I would like to summarize the article in English.

There are many overseas collectors of Wajima-nuri in particular. Due to the recent earthquake, many Wajima-nuri craftsmen suddenly lost their homes and are working hard to rebuild, even though there is still no prospect of reopening.
Wajima-nuri is not something that can be done by one person; it is a division of labor that results in high-quality works. It is considered to be the best technique in Japan.

The techniques cultivated over many years are unique to each individual. Each craftsman is a precious asset of Wajima-nuri.

Here, I would like to compile information on craftsmen who are seeking direct support and information on how support can be provided from overseas.

Additionally, as logistics functions are currently suspended, most online shops are unable to deliver overseas. If there are any Wajima-nuri shops that are now able to handle overseas shipping, I will update them here as well.

I hope that those affected by the disaster can return to their daily lives as soon as possible.
