Don’t know what to do other than shopping and sightseeing in Japan? Well, why not try making your own beautiful Japanese gold leaf craft as a souvenir?!
Recognized by UNESCO as a Creative City of Crafts and Folk Art, Kanazawa is a city in Ishikawa Prefecture that produces the most gold leaf throughout Japan. In fact, the gold leaf used to gild*1 Kyoto’s Kinkaku-ji (Golden Pavilion) is also from this city.
At Gold Leaf Sakuda, you can see how the gold leaf itself is produced and experience the gilding process yourselves. Choose your favorite item, from chopsticks, plates to mini storage boxes, then personalize it with a unique design applied with gold leaf.
You don’t have to worry as the artisan will kindly guide you along the way.
