TAKAOKA, TOYAMA

Metalware

Since 1609, Takaoka City has flourished and during those 400 years, built its reputation as the centre of the copper industry in Japan. Gradually adding tableware and interior products to its lineup, in 1916 NOUSAKU began manufacturing more intricate items such as Buddhist altar fittings, tea sets and flower vases.

 

Despite the deceptively simple appearance of some of these items, manufacturing often requires multiple processes. For instance, the fine appearance of the wind-bells and the tableware is due to the advanced casting and refined finishing techniques of NOUSAKU’s master craftsmen.
