Wajima Lacquerware Museum輪島塗会館
A museum dedicated to Wajima lacquerware located near the Shinbashi Bridge in the heart of Wajima. The museum was recently remodeled in 2015. Inside its bright and spacious confines, visitors can view many examples of Wajima lacquerware. There is a gallery and shop on the first floor which sells lacquerware products from some 60 artisans and shops in the city. The shop's large selection spans items for everyday use like lacquered chopsticks, to gorgeously painted decorative lacquerware pieces. The second floor exhibition space has two rooms. The first exhibition room presents how lacquerware is made. The second exhibition room conveys the depths of Wajima lacquerware, presenting the history and culture of the craft, examples of the lacquering process, and historical materials.

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.
