Hakuza Main Shop (箔座本店)
"A shop which makes and sells items decorated with gold and silver leaf located a seven minute drive from JR Kanazawa Station. The shop's name is derived from an actual agency which once governed the use of gold and silver foil. The shop is notable for its adaptability-in addition to maintaining the traditional techniques of ""enzuke"" gold leafing, the shop also makes use of modern gold leafing techniques as is deemed appropriate to the situation. The main shop location allows visitors to observe artisans working with gold leaf and is the only place where you can see a tearoom decorated with some 40 thousand sheets of highest quality ""enzuke"" gold leaf, a traditional technique highly prized in the restoration of National Treasures. In addition, the shop sells a wide selection of original products only a specialty shop like this can carry such as Hakuji gold leaf ceramics."

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.
