    Ishikawa Kanazawa-shi Nagamachi 2-6-16
    This Kaga Yuzen dyeing studio is operated by Chibeni, a dyer established some 200 years ago during the early Edo period. Here visitors can see a variety of Kaga Yuzen kimono and other craft articles made by Ikko Teranishi, the seventh head of a Kaga Yuzen dyeing family; in addition, visitors can also try actual Yuzen dyeing themselves. The facility also has a shop where you can purchase original and exclusive Yuzen-dyed items.

    The exhibits may seem faded and old, but they show an age old tradition and beauty that is the very essence of Japan. The silks are beautiful.

    Ishikawa Hakusan-shi Yahatamachi Ri 1-6
    This studio focuses on using wood from the Shishiku area. The facility is broadly divided into two areas - a wood studio and a food studio. The wood studio operates as a wood crafts store owned by a lumber dealer which has been in business for over a century. The studio sells a wide variety of items and also regularly holds woodworking workshops. The food studio operates as a pizzeria and bakes pizzas using a big brick firewood oven. The food studio also offers a large selection of other dishes, including pastas and desserts.

    This is one of my favourite restaurants in the area. The food is always good with very kind service. The building is completely made from wood, and is really romantic.

    A glass studio that's a part of the Roadside Station Notojima in Koda-machi, Notojima, Nanao City. They produce glass works including their own original heat resistant Tainetsu Yohen Glass, which has a texture similar to porcelain. In the attached shop they have glass products from various creators and they also offer glass workshops including glass blowing and sand blasting.

    風鈴作りを体験しました。 予約は不要で、ほぼ待つこともなし。 手袋やエプロンは貸してもらえるので、服装を気にすることもありません。 形や色など決めると職人さんが熱したガラスの塊を持ってきてくれて、アドバイス通りに息を吹き込みます。 10分程で形が出来ました。 冷ます必要があるので、当日持ち帰りはできませんが有料で宅配してくれます。

    Ishikawa Kanazawa-shi Utatsumachi To 10

    2019年1月訪問しました。 近くまで車で行き、卯辰山を散策しながら向かいました。途中に炉があり(大きかった!)、少し進むと工房が見えてきます。が、改修工事をしており中の展示を見ることはできませんでした。 ガラス越しに見た感じだと、美術館のように、ガラスケースの中に展示があるようです。直接見られず残念。 ですが、炉は見ることができたのと、周辺の景観が素晴らしく、散策にはいい場所でした。

Ishikawa Areas


Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
