This property is a material representing the process of producing wax from lacquer fruit. It is widely known that it produces raw lacquer from Urushi, but it is not well known that it produces wax from candles. There is a place in the Ninohe region where lacquer wax from the russy has been produced as an important product under the control of firewood.

Apply the melted wax to "wax rice cake" many times and finish it as a candle. It is said that such work was seen during the farming season.
