原点回帰

GOING BACK TO OUR ROOTS

「原点回帰」は物事の本質を見極め,根本に立ち返る事。物事を始めるときには理想を抱きます。しかし現実の荒波に揉まれる中で、最初に抱いていた理想が次第にすり減ってしまう。物事がおかしくなってきた時に、すり減った理想をもう一度取り戻す儀式。リセットではありません。そこまで積み上げたものは絶対に無くなりません。しかし、思考を原点に戻すことで、人は当初に抱いていた理想を思い出すことができます。

“Gentenkaiki” is an expression that means ‘determining the essence of things and going back to the basics.’ Often, when you start something new, you cherish a lofty ideal. However, as you are tossed about by the storms of reality, the ideal that you originally held is gradually lost and you might become mentally drained. When you feel that things are going wrong, Gentenkaiki can be a kind of ceremony at a turning point in life to restore yourself. It is not a reset. Anything built up to that point is not be misplaced. Rather, you become able to recall your original ideals by returning your way of thinking back to the original point.

奈良に都があった頃から湯治客を招き、土産物として作られた山中漆器。国内外の販路を開拓、世界的デザイン賞の受賞など伝統的な山中漆器の技術の発信をしてきた。歴史を振り返り山中温泉で1から原点回帰する。それが「GATO MIKIO/1」です。

We have hosted visitors at the hot spring resort since the era when the capital was located in Nara, and came to produce lacquerware as souvenirs for them. This is the start of the history of Yamanaka Lacquerware. We continue to cultivate sales channels inside Japan and overseas, and show our presence and Yamanaka’s traditional techniques by winning international design awards and so forth. “GATOMIKIO/1” came from the idea of Gentenkaiki, starting this first store of GATOMIKIO in Yamanaka, looking back on its roots, as a new beginning.
