Shirokiya has continued the manufacture and sale of many laquerware products at the current store location since the Kyoho era. After Aizu and the laquerware industry was devastated in the Boshin Civil War, Shirokiya has gone on to become a well-established shop in Japan, and has received several awards including at the Western Europe Expo. Using the stecniques of the classic period, the storehouse features 3 floors, completed in 1914, and is consistently home to more than 1,000 or more types of laquerware.
