Wikipedia has an article on:

(urushi): a traditional red lacquerware serving set.
Kanji in this term
うるし
Grade: S
kun'yomi

Appears to be derived from Old Japanese root uru, as in terms such as classical Japanese 潤う ‎(urufu) → modern 潤う ‎(uruou, to be moist), うるうる ‎(uruuru, wetly, moistly, adv). Probably from the way that a lacquered surface glistens as if wet.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

  1. lacquer, varnish
  2. Toxicodendron vernicifluum, the lacquer tree
