About Kanzawa foil:
Kanazawa foil, a 400-year old Kanazawa tradition. Kanazawa accounts for more than 98% of all gold foil production in Japan. Gold leaf is used in a variety of crafts, such as lacquerware and ceramics, as well as in temples and shrines with high historical value, such as Kinkaku-ji and Nikkō Tōshō-gū.
Gold foil has been developed the most among the 37 types of traditional craft techniques passed down from the time of the first Kaga feudal lord, Toshiie Maeda.
Noh and tea ceremonies were frequently held as part of the domain's cultural incentives which led to the development of traditional crafts. It is said that the persevering "artisan spirt" fostered by climate, topography, and the Hokuriku region itself is also a main factor for the development of gold foil.
