Where to buy local crafts?

I have read that Takamatsu area is famous for Kagawa Lacquer Ware. Is there a factory I can visit to observe the process and purchase some pieces? Also is it possible to view some Bonsai nurseries? Are there any other industries the area is famous for? We enjoy observing the production process as my husband and I are keen on crafts and gardening ourselves. Thanking you for any assistance.

The Urushi Lacquer Ware Institute provides the tour (send an email by substituting * with @ in the below) and the store.
