Chapter Summary

This chapter opens by examining Tsugaru identity and the potential factors of development for the area and then turns to the Aomori Prefecture and Hirosaki City, Japan, revitalization policy. The chapter closes by looking at the case for Tsugaru lacquerware and Tsugaru shamisen in national and local government policy. Encouraging in terms of cultural commodities in local revitalization is the recognition of a specific local character, presumably through the local history, culture and cultural commodities which can be brought to local revitalization. There was recognition of the local natural resource base of the area together with the historical and cultural base of local history, culture and commodities in local revitalization on the part of consumers. The focus of policy presented and the contrast between recognition of Tsugaru lacquerware and Tsugaru shamisen in that policy, sets the stage for consideration of the production and consumption of these two local cultural commodities.
