Approximately 80% of coral artifact producers and dealers in Japan are concentrated in Kochi Prefecture due to an abundance of precious coral and the excellent technique of processing coral handed down from generation to generation. In particular, the oxblood type of coral has drawn worldwide attention as "Tosa Coral." Tosa is the old name of Kochi Prefecture. The region’s pink coral is highly prized as a coral species unique to Kochi Prefecture.
