‘Kanaya Machi Rakuichi in Samanoko’ is an event held in Kanayamachi town, the birthplace of Takaoka traditional casting that goes back 400 years. The townscape of Kanayamachi is characteristic of beautiful vertical lattices（samanoko in Japanese）which have been maintained since the Edo period. In this event, the town is designed as a museum, where manufactured art works or craft products are displayed and sold. There will be a special program, in which you can wear kimono, and enjoy yourself at a tea ceremony with craft works, so as to touch the essence of Japanese craft making. A workshop of basic casting will be held, too. This is the best opportunity to experience Japanese culture that is being lost in large cities. We really hope you will come along.
