Kanazawa Gold Leaf Crafts

The Samurai Maeda Clan encouraged goldsmith artisans to develop the craft, and the art of gold leaf flourished. Even today, almost 100% of the gold leaf used in Japan is produced in Kanazawa.

Try your hand at making crafts with this precious metal with Kanazawa Tours. Everything you make is yours to take home with you, making it a unique souvenir full of memories from Kanazawa, a UNESCO city of crafts.

Workshop lasts 1 hour.
