A number of superb pieces, local specialities that Ishikawa Prefecture can take pride in
Numerous handicrafts originating from the culture of the "Kaga Hyakumangoku" and handed down through generations, radiate with the skills of the traditional artisan. "Wajima-nuri" is handcrafted lacquerware, a very thorough process requiring more than 100 steps. "Kutani-yaki" is a world-famous Japanese porcelain. The elegant kimono "Kaga yuzen" is imbued with beautiful natural vitality. "Kaga mizuhiki zaiku" is popular as a delicate and elegant accessory. Finally, gold leaf gilding, with the largest production in Japan, is used not only for various handicrafts, but also for making cosmetics and sweets.
