Hakusan Craft Workshop (白山工房)
They say that Ushikubi-tsumugi weaving began with mechanical weaving techniques passed down by the wife and daughters of a certain Oohata who was a Genji fugitive and flowed to Ushikubi Village after his defeat by Heike in the Heiji rebellion of 1159. Here, you can learn about the historical sericulture and textile arts of the Shiramine area, from silk reeling, reclamation, and refining. They also offer reservation-only activities like hataori weaving and making silk cocoon dolls.

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.
