DE-122, Horaisan (Mt. Horai). The rocks were raised with silver powder and Urushi and burnished by Shishiai Togidashi Maki-e technique. Tsukegaki (very thin lines drawn with sticker Urushi before the fine gold powder is sprinkled. - the technique is used for lasting effect.) is used on the crane, the trees and the house.
